In June, Christophe Cizeron, the new president of the cluster, took up his duties to pursue the development of Lyonbiopole in connection with the strategic roadmap 3.0 which runs until the end of 2018.

For ten years, Lyonbiopole has supported the international development of its members. Once again this year, the International BIO Convention allowed us to give high visibility to the 28 actors of the delegation we have accompanied.
