Dialogues on the BioRegion

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Biocat has launched a series of dialogues on topics of interest to stakeholders in the BioRegion of Catalonia: 10 conversations to explain the next 10 years’. With an innovative, casual format, this initiative aims to create a new space where participants can reflect on the Catalan healthcare and life sciences ecosystem.  

Renowned experts in different areas will exchange ideas, analyses and points of view in one-on-one conversations without a moderator. The program, which kicked off in 2016 during the Forum of the BioRegion, features 10 events and is expected to run through 2018. Over this time, key topics will be discussed to explain the future of the BioRegion, including entrepreneurship, business models and technology.
