The EBDC 2015 will examine topics such as next generation medicines for autoimmune diseases. We will also look at companion diagnostics and other key market drivers in oncology, discuss alternatives for biotech financing and will evaluate if the hype on immunotherapies can realize its promise.
Following the successful premiere in 2014 (with an uptake of 53% of the attendees), conference partnering will be offered again this year, allowing you to meet privately with international decision makers from the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as other life sciences industry suppliers.
Reliable partners in conducting clinical trials are the key to a drug’s successful benefit assessment, both for innovative biotech companies and global pharmaceutical companies. Both small and large CROs will be able to present their expertise at the exhibition.
The EBDC is an annual event that brings leading decision makers from international pharmaceutical companies and European biotech firms together with representatives of private equity and venture capital companies (see list of attending companies). The EBDC provides a forum for making contacts and discussing topics and trends of relevance to the market. The conference is attended by CEOs, managing directors and senior business development managers.
About half of innovative drugs result from national – but especially international – collaborations. This is why the motto for this years' event is:
Transborder > Transaction > Translation
