Cluster's life

 PARTNERING DAY: A 13th EDITION MORE COLLABORATIVE AND INTERNATIONAL THAN NEVER!This new edition brought together more than 265 participants with the aim of bringing together stakeholders in the health sector to anticipate the medicine of the future. The opening conference was led by Professor Issam El Naqua of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Michigan, as a world expert in artificial intelligence. 10 brainstorming workshops on prospective topics led by KOLs then allowed participants to discuss. In addition, for the first time at the event, discussion sessions were organised with all regional, national and European public funders to present to participants the support mechanisms for the development of their projects: Aura Region, ANR, BPI France, GOS, SGPI, H2020, EIT Health and IMI. In the afternoon, the Bluesky Meeting gave the floor to 12 SMEs and academic laboratories looking for partners. Then 3 leaders of collaborative projects shared their experiences. Finally, the exchanges were deepened during a BtoB meeting session or over a drink in the booth's village set up for the occasion. A way of promoting innovation and collaboration in the region.
 3 members of Lyonbiopole in Dublin during the European Nutrition Conference FENSAs part of its Plan for Internationalisation funded by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, Lyonbiopole supported Bioparhom, Orexial and Sodiaal during an international collective mission to Dublin on the occasion of the 13th edition of the European Conference on Nutrition. This international mission allowed the delegation to take part in the FENS conference, to take advantage of a program of individual meetings organized by the local office of CIC International and thus obtain qualified information on scientific trends and news in Nutrition-Health on a European scale... Through this mission, Lyonbiopole wanted to promote the region's know-how beyond borders and strengthen its expertise in Nutrition-Health. It is done: next meeting in October 2020 in Quebec.
