BIO-Europe Spring® comes to Paris for the springtime life science partnering event not to be missed  


Munich, Germany and Paris, France – February 13, 2020:  The fourteenth annual BIO-Europe Spring® international partnering conference meets for the second time in beautiful Paris, France, March 23–25 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.  The event is produced by EBD Group and hosted by Medicen Paris Region, together with Choose Paris Region and the Paris Region Council.

More than 2,500 senior executives from 1,400+ leading international biotech and pharmaceutical companies, investors and business development team members will attend this annual event, held this year in one of Europe’s epicenters for life sciences, bringing together world-renowned research clusters, universities and innovative companies. The region is especially attractive for startups and SMEs thanks to the availability of public and private funding, access to top R&D talent and a massive marketplace.


“We are very excited to work with EBD Group to make their springtime flagship event a big success in Paris,” said Christian Lajoux, Chairman of Medicen Paris Region, the world-class life sciences cluster for the Paris region. “The health-tech ecosystem of the Paris Region is so rich and innovative that it is a great place to find the best experts—clinicians, scientists, startups—to design and build strong collaborative projects and, in the end, high-level therapeutic solutions brought to the market.”

Lajoux said, “Our ecosystem is particularly strong in the fields of digital health, innovative biotherapies, biological diagnostic and medical imaging, applied to all therapeutic areas (oncology, neurosciences, immunology, infectiology, rare diseases).”

“BIO-Europe Spring is the most significant industry event of the new year where top executives from global biotech, pharma and finance come together with hundreds of potential partners to negotiate favorable deals for developing therapies and cures,” said Pam Putz, Managing Director Europe for EBD Group. “We’re so happy to bring this event back to the wonderful city of Paris.”
