Due to last year’s great success, The Next Scientists & Health & Innovation District Amsterdam (Hid) are organizing a new edition of this event, which is designed to enhance collaboration between academic researchers and business professionals in the life science industry. By bringing together thought-leaders from both domains, we aim to facilitate dialogue, promote mutual understanding, and stimulate innovation. Whether you’re an academic keen to commercialize your research, a business professional exploring scientific collaborations, or merely intrigued by the intersection of these realms, this event promises to offer valuable insights and potential partnerships.

  • Nawal Bahia el Idrissi, Director Strategy & Partnerships, Health & Innovation District Amsterdam (Hid)
