“Belgium-Flanders: Gateway to Life Sciences in Europe” seminar

Date: 24 Apr 2015
Location: Shanghai, China

Belgium-Flanders is home to a vibrant biotechnology research and development community, both on academic and industrial level.

VIB, a non-profit research institute in the life sciences, supports innovative research in the area of human, industrial and plant biotechnology, with about 1200 scientists across 72 research groups, and has been ranked No. 2 in Europe. VIB also translates innovative research into new social and industrial applications, ultimately leading to an enhanced quality of life for society.

On this solid research base, a whole range of biotechnology companies have started business and secured national and foreign investments, resulting in the largest biotechnology SME market cap in Europe.

Under the leadership of the cluster organization FlandersBio, Flandershas developed into one of the top 5 clusters in Europe, and the most centrally located to cover the European market. Adding to this the advanced clinical trial expertise, it is no wonder that Flanders has attracted many world-leading US and European pharmaceutical companies to set up R&D and production facilities in Flanders.

In order to promote more bilateral cooperation between China and Belgium, Flanders Investment & trade will hold “Belgium-Flanders: Gateway to Life Sciences in Europe” seminar in Shanghai on April 24 2015 at Conference 5 of Shanghai World Expo Exhibition& Conference Center.

We look forward to seeing you at the event and welcoming also Chinese pharma companies to start R&D collaborations and set up R&D and production facilities in the center of Europe.
