Infectious Diseases Virtual Partnering: 2-4 December
During three days of face-to-face targeted online meetings, leading researchers, top biotechs and biopharmaceutical companies will meet, network and partner to accelerate infectious diseases pipelines and bring new treatment options to patients worldwide.
About this conference
Where the best science comes to meet
Infectious diseases have always impacted human history, but in the past 50 years we have managed to control or eliminate some infectious diseases through improved hygiene, vaccination, antimicrobials, advances in medicine and public health policies. However, the current pandemic is a reminder that we need to continue to pursue our efforts to control these pathogens, especially with intercontinental travel and increased mobility of people and animals.
To manage infectious diseases, we use tools such as vaccines, antibiotics, antivirals, diagnostic tools and biomarkers. But today there are many infectious diseases for which we do not have satisfactory preventive tools or treatment options, such as SARS-CoV-2, Zika virus, Ebola virus, multidrug resistant bacteria, HIV, Malaria. To develop these future tools, collaboration is essential, either for sourcing assets in the vaccine, antiviral or antibiotic space, or for finding research tools to help in screening, in-vivo modelling, clinical trials and diagnostics and biomarkers.
It is in this context that we are organising the Infectious Diseases Virtual Partnering event, focusing on diseases caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. With current travel restrictions, this virtual event will help you to find the right business partner to pursue your objectives.
This event will leverage Inova and Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO)’s biopharma industry expertise, leading digital networking platform and years of experience organizing partnering events to connect scientific and business communities for the benefit of patients worldwide.

About the Virtual Partnering Platform
This event will leverage Inova and BIO's matchmaking platform, One-on-One Partnering™, that has been at the heart of major international biopharmaceutical conventions since 2015. It’s the leading partnering system that facilitates thousands of face-to-face meetings at dozens of biopharma conferences worldwide including the BIO International Convention, BIO Digital and BIO Asia. For instance, in the weeks before the BIO International Convention, 4,000 biopharma companies connect online, list their technologies and capabilities, and request meetings with potential partners. By the time the Convention opens thousands of relevant meetings are scheduled – almost 50,000 at BIO Convention 2019 alone.
