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 six month program that gives fellows the tools they need to develop business ideas based on unmet clinical needs, with a multidisciplinary approach.
