Network Events

The European Biotechnology Network has a busy calendar to support cooperation within European Biotechnology:

  • Workshops and webinars to identify all opportunities open to biotechnology companies in Europe
  • Collaborative partnership meetings to build and deliver consortia
  • Featured events with discounts for our members

Most of our network events are free of charge, with priority registration to corporate members. Most featured events offer a discount to EBN members. See our Calendar for more events.

Upcoming Webinars

    EBN’s autumn 2016 webinar series will continue to focus on key topics that enable diverse partnerships, and will include:

    • Open Innovation in pharma – creating a new practical language of collaboration to boost joint R&D innovations. Niclas Nilsson from LEO Pharma leads a webinar which explores a disruptive model of Open Innovation with the aim to create a common language and ecosystem for external collaboration.
    • Creating mutually beneficial collaborations – Collaborations need to meet the needs of all partners if they are to be genuinely successful and long term. This webinar will hear from universities, SMEs, clinicians, research centres and large companies about their priorities, with the aim to help coordinators understand how they build the best collaborations.
    • Valuation of research – Research throughout the value chain can be formally quantified and this is relevant far earlier than inside companies. This webinar will hear from research valuation experts and people who have been through the process with their own programmes. It will be a fascinating insight into how research can been assessed and will help SME and universities to review their own work for improved future planning and development.
    • Opportunities in the Bio-based industries funding platform – EBN members can find out how they can be involved in Europe’s bio-industry public private partnership. Understanding what it is, how the funding works and how they can get involved, with opportunities for technologies across the life science spectrum.
