EBE at Bio Europe Spring 2018 – “Funding gaps in the European Life Science Sector”
14 March 2018 from 9h00 – 10h00 CET at RAI Amsterdam Convention Center, Room E107, Europa plein, NL 1078 GZ Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Commission in 2016 and 2017 carried out an assessment of funding available to the European life science sector. Looking at several clusters across Europe (Catalonia in Spain, Bavaria in Germany, South-East England and Poland) available funding is characterised as well as what funding mechanisms are considered to work and where the big gaps are. This session will discuss options from different perspectives.
The confirmed participants are: Shiva Dustdar, Head of Innovation Finance Advisory at the European Investment Bank; Ferenc Marofka, Policy officer, Directorate General Research and Development, European Commission, Eduardo Bravo, CEO TiGenix and EBE-President, and Holger Reithinger, Parter at Forbion. The session will be moderated by EBE’s Executive Director, Barbara Freischem.
