Our Programmes

Drawing on the expertise of our founders and listening to the needs of the different voices within our ecosystem, we have developed a set of activities and initiatives to support collaboration, growth and investment.

We are continuously expanding and evolving our programme offering to provide deeper, more effective collaboration and to raise awareness globally of the region’s rich life sciences cluster.
