1st BioScience Partnering Event: Berlin - Brandenburg meets Poznan

The BioScience Partnering event provided excellent opportunities for researchers and representatives in the area of Life Sciences and Biotechnology from both regions to establish new contacts and joint activities.

The program included presentations of both regions followed by scientific talks about key science activities and important research topics in the Life Sciences. Participants were invited to present a poster at the venue. The initiative BioScience Partnering invited all participants to apply for a traveling grant to bring forward new ideas for bilateral cooperation. Furthermore, the co:bios FOUNDATION offered the possibility for PhD students to participate at a research project in the region Berlin-Brandenburg. The event was jointly organised by the BioScience Partnering initiative of Berlin-Brandenburg together with the Adam Mickiewicz University Poznan (Poland). As an activity in the context of the German-Polish Year the meeting was supported by the Bundesminsterium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF).
