Since 2016, the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation as the partner of Enterprise Europe Network in Japan, has been organizing a Brokerage Event in Biotech and Pharma sectors in Osaka, Japan.
This year, the Biotech ＆ Pharma Partnering Conference will be held online as a virtual event! Due to the time differences, meetings can be arranged over 3 days from 28 to 30 September. All meetings will be held in the form of video calls, which can be made directly via the partnering platform without the need for any additional software.
Being Japan’s second largest city, Osaka is a major economic centre for Biotech and Pharma industry in Japan and hosts several biotech clusters. Historically, a large number of pharmaceutical companies have been concentrated in Osaka. Nowadays, bio-related pharmaceutical companies, food manufacturers and their surrounding companies, including chemical and medical equipment companies are accumulated around Osaka and forming clusters.
During the event, business representatives of EU companies will have an opportunity to attend pre-arranged B2B meetings with Japanese companies from the Kansai region.
