For the third edition of the Swiss Biotech™ Fall Day during the European biotech week, our host was BioArk, a technology site specialising in life sciences. It supports start-ups and existing companies working in the fields of biotechnology and diagnostics. BioArk is situated in Monthey, where several multinationals involved in fine chemistry and biotechnology have been present for many years.
More than 90 participants from all over Switzerland came to Monthey early in the morning for the conference “Biopharmaceuticals – from production to development”. Eleven speakers representing both big companies and start-ups were invited to present their work and give updates on their current project/activities. The number of questions asked after the sessions and the interactions during the networking lunch showcased the success of the event. During the conference, participants also had the opportunity to use a new partnering tool.
