Virtual matchmaking event - How does it work?


During this international networking event you are able to virtually connect with Life Sciences & Health professionals in 2 different ways:

- Interactive group sessions, together you co-create and explore several practical solutions for many of today’s biggest healthcare problems.
- One on One meetings, a quick and easy way to meet potential cooperation partners. 20 minutes run fast, but they are enough to build first connections before the meeting ends and the next talk starts.
