Ghent (ICC international convention center ghent) / Belgium

The 7th edition of its annual life sciences convention Knowledge for Growth organised by FlandersBio will focus on "Biotech meets global needs - improving people's lives"

Knowledge for Growth is Europe's largest regional biotech convention.

The principal ingredients of the convention are networking, keynote scientific lectures, science, technology and management presentations and a trade and poster exhibition. Just like last year, we will also organise a Job Fair, giving companies and jobseekers in the life sciences an opportunity to get to know each other.

The participants are biotech, medical technology and pharma companies, as well as academic research institutes and providers of capital, services and technologies to the life sciences community.

More than 200 companies were present at the 2010 edition, 90 scientists presented their scientific abstract as a poster at the convention, 95 jobseekers submitted a CV for the Job Fair and more than 900 individual participants (62% industry, 38% academic) registered for the convention.
