The State of Niedersachsen and four of its leading bioscience enterprises present biotech and pharma solutions at the Bio International Convention, 4 – 7 June 2018 in Boston.

At this year’s BIO International Convention (BIO) around 16,000 participants from the biotec and pharma industries are expected, gathering in Boston to discuss the latest developments in their sectors and initiate promising partnerships. The range of topics is wide, covering the most diverse fields of application such as pharmaceutical research, biological production, genomics, organic fuels, nanotechnology and cell therapy.

Innovations – Made in Niedersachsen

Life Sciences and the health services sector are growth areas and key markets of the Niedersachsen economy, with particular strengths in hearing and implant research, biomedical technology, but also  in infection-, veterinary- and neurological research.

This year the State of Niedersachsen is represented at the Bio International Convention from 4 – 7 June 2018 with its own Stand 1613 at the Germany Pavilion.
