Join us on January 31, 2023 to connect with Swiss universities and research organizations active in biotech!

In the spotlight this year is our new Data Science platform, along with keynote speakers focusing on how digital technologies are transforming biotechnology. A panel of SMEs will discuss public-private biotech R&D. You will also have the opportunity to tour HES-SO Life Technology labs inside Energypolis.

Our technology platforms will present their latest research and events - this is a great opportunity to discuss new project ideas with key actors at Swiss universities and research organizations.
