At the crossroads of science and business

Revealing innovative talent

The Biocat development programs are at the crossroads of technology, health, biosciences and business management. They are meant both for young people in the early phases of their research careers and professionals who want to learn how to drive innovation in health.

d·HEALTH Barcelona Part Time is a eight month program that gives fellows the tools they need to develop business ideas based on unmet clinical needs, with a multidisciplinary approach. The program partners with top-notch hospitals and a team of international experts in clinical innovation, entrepreneurship and investment. The knowledge acquired is the perfect foundation for kick starting an entrepreneurial project, but is also key for leading internal innovation processes.

Each year, Biocat also holds several Short Programs, which give participants an overview of the life sciences and healthcare sector, or look at key aspects of areas like product development, market access or regulatory processes. 

Over time, the training programs Biocat offers evolve and adapt to the sector’s technological transformation. In addition to the training programs, Biocat also organizes or takes part in several business acceleration programs to develop negotiation and communication skills, among others.

Helping research organizations and companies in the BioRegion attract and retain talent from at home and abroad is also a priority for Biocat, which contributes with tools like the job board and works to drive the international positioning and promotion of the BioRegion.
