About this conference

Where the best science comes to meet

With the Neuroscience Virtual Partnering Event, our aim is to create the connections between biotech companies and pharmaceutical companies, increasing the chances for biotechs to succeed.

From 9-12 November, Inova in collaboration with Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), are organizing a 4-day virtual partnering event on neuroscience where participants will have the opportunity to network using the partnering platform and showcase their companies through short video presentations or through links to their scientific abstracts.

Through one-on-one meetings, they will discuss the latest research from neurology congresses, learn about emerging start-ups, pitch ideas and partner to prioritize research efforts that hold the most promise.

Participants will be exchanging about topics such as neurodegenerative, neurological and psychiatric diseases, chronic pain, Huntington’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, neurological rare diseases, spinal muscular atrophy and other central and peripheral nervous system disorders.

This event will leverage Inova and 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.
