The success of the first edition led the French association of animal health industry (SIMV) to organize once again the R&D dating for animal health and innovation which takes place on 1 and 2 December 2015 in Strasbourg. Hosted within BioFIT, these meetings aim to initiate high-level exchanges between teams from private and public research and biotechnology companies, in veterinary and human medicine in Europe. Already more than fifty organizations and companies registered for this second edition. They are organized in partnership with the Animal Health Carnot Institute, The technology transfer SATT IdfInnov, the cluster Atlanpôle Biothérapie, the European Manufacturers of veterinary diagnostics (EMVD) and Provaxs of the Ghent University.
To catalyze commitment to research and development of veterinary pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies, the SIMV created the “R&D dating for Animal Health and Innovation”. The second edition will be held on December 1st & 2nd, 2015 in Strasbourg, France, similar to last year in the heart of Biofit.
The objective of these meetings is to initiate high-level exchanges between research departments of the health industry (veterinary and human), and public research, as well as biotechnology companies (start-ups) to promote European expertise in animal health, leading to partnerships (public-private and private-private) and to promote innovation.
Once again, these meetings provide a unique opportunity for public and private researchers to meet and exchange on innovative projects to create new synergies in veterinary and human medicine in a “One Health” atmosphere.
Converging the two events "Biofit" and "R&D dating for Animal Health and Innovation", the actors of the Human and Animal Health will have the opportunity to meet and interact on subjects affecting each of them.
This event is organized in partnership with the Animal Health Carnot Institute, The technology transfer SATT IdfInnov, the cluster Atlanpôle Biothérapie, the European Manufacturers of veterinary diagnostics (EMVD) and Provaxs of the Ghent University.
All actors involved in animal health innovation or with animal health applications are invited to attend these meetings, which are organized in the form of a business convention to benefit from the European expertise in this sector.
In order to broaden the possibilities of encounters and particularly exchanges in “One Health” ecosystem, the SIMV chose to host its event within the event BioFIT on December 1st and 2nd, 2015 in Strasbourg, at the same place and during the same period thereby benefitting from its European set-up.
