The 2023 programme is rooted in four custom- made tracks, addressing the right funding sources for early-stage innovation, best practices in academia-industry R&D collaborations, winning ways to nurture early-stage assets and animal health highlights.
BioFIT 2023 hosts the 9th edition of the “R&D dating for Animal Health and Innovation” business convention, at the initiative of the French association for the animal healthcare industry (SIMV).
Today, public-private and private-private partnerships are thought to be the leverage that is needed for innovation. That is why the SIMV launched the “R&D dating for Animal Health and Innovation”, which strives to initiate highlevel exchanges between research departments of the veterinary medicine and diagnostics industry and public research, as well as with biotechnology companies (start-ups). By enabling face-to-face encounters, the event enhances the visibility of cutting-edge research in France and in Europe, encourage investments and lead to therapeutic innovation.
Biopharma industry has been facing uncertainties in 2023: What is the impact for early-stage partnering strategies?
In a global landscape marked by geopolitical complexities including inflation, conflicts, energy price fluctuations, and financial strains, investment opportunities and innovation dynamics have been challenged. As the industry navigates through a changing landscape, this session will explore how these uncertainties are shaping early-stage investment trends and consequently, strategies to forge successful partnerships.
What are the main current issues and opportunities in terms of financing and partnering in the EU biotech ecosystem compared to the US? Has the availability of capital really been affected at the seed and series A stages? Are there any emerging trends or innovative approaches in early-stage collaborations that have emerged as a response? What are the impacts on the negotiation and terms of early-stage partnerships? How are biotech start-ups and pharma companies making the most of the current reality? What is the outlook for life sciences dealmaking in 2024?
The Start-up Slams are a great opportunity for young companies (and particularly for start-ups seeking to raise a seed or a Series A financing round) to showcase their project in front of potential partners and investors.
