09 April 2020Inova, Lyonbiopole and Evaluate have joined forces to launch a unique virtual partnering event, backed by a consortium of biotech clusters and trade associations in the life sciences industry, to be held across the globe from 20 April to 6 May 2020. This initiative is supported by EIT Health


Today’s COVID-19 crisis requires a previously unimaginable acceleration of output from the biopharmaceutical and life sciences industry. It raises the question about the ability to find the right partner in developing diagnostics, drug treatments and, ultimately, a COVID-19 vaccine. Beyond R&D – COVID-19 also raises a series of questions about the ability to handle the massive scale-up needed to deliver urgent solutions to protect health workers in the front line of the epidemic and patients alike.


The way forward requires an enormous leadership and collaboration effort within the life sciences industry to leave no stone unturned.


#PartneringAgainstCOVID19 is enabling small and big players worldwide to meet and match their skills and efforts against COVID-19.


The event is being made possible by Inova, which is leveraging its biopharma industry expertise, its leading digital networking platform and years of experience in organizing partnering events. Lyonbiopole and Evaluate will also support the event, leveraging their global life sciences networks and expertise.


Participation is free and open to any organization that provides products, knowledge, or technologies that can help in the effort to develop and produce testing, treatment and vaccine solutions to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
