The ABCEurope project (Advanced Biotech Cluster Platforms for Europe), promoted by the European Council of Bioregions (CEBR) and in which the Barcelona Science Park (PCB) participates, is organising the Matchmaking Virtual-Oncology event so that the life-science enterprises may make contact with the SMEs of innovative technologies in the field of oncology and thus reach potential agreements of collaboration and concession of licences.

The purpose of ABCEurope, a three-year project (2009-2012), is to promote and improve the interrelations and associations between the bioclusters and among their enterprises.

It is financed by the European Union within the 7th Framework Program and has a budget of € 3.5 million.
