Biocat, ACCIÓ and TIC Salut Social are coordinating the Catalonia Health Innovation Ecosystem Pavilion, a special section for health in Hall 8.0, where companies from the BioRegion of Catalonia can network and share their solutions. A chance to discover other companies and forge high impact collaborations.

On its tenth anniversary, 4YFN is once again putting the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Barcelona and Catalonia on the world stage for four days. There will be conferences, debates, panels with opinion leaders and startups, and networking activities.

Is this opportunity for me?

To request a space in the Catalonia Health Innovation Ecosystem Pavilion your startup must meet the following requirements:

  • The company must be recently created and have less than 10 years in the business.
  • Be located in Catalonia.
  • Significant technological component or disruptive innovation.
  • A scalable business model with high potential for growth and focused on the global market.
  • CIF (business ID number) - no freelance professionals will be accepted.
  • At least three people working full time on the project (some exceptions may be made for healthcare startups).
  • Companies that only offer consultancy services, develop software for third parties or only have a website without much activity are not eligible.


Priority will be given to startups that meet the following requirements: 

  • Startups using technology that is directly considered personalized medicine (e.g., gene therapy, genomic or in vitro diagnostics/services). 
  • Startups that use technology for prevention (e.g., predictive analysis, telehealth, digital screening/diagnostics). 
  • Startups whose product description explicitly states that their product/service is for preventive or personalized medicine.
