Once again this year, bioXclusters Plus is glad to announce the organisation of the "European Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference, Osaka, 2017", on October 10th. It will be held at the Congrès Convention Center in Osaka, Japan. This action is part of the MoU signed in 2016 between bioXclusters Plus and the Osaka Bio Headquarters.

This event is organised by Japanese and European entities:

  • Osaka Prefectural Government
  • Senri Life Science Foundation
  • Osaka Business and Investment Center
  • Protein Mall Kansai 
  • EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation
  • bioXclusters plus (European Commission-funded initiative)
  • Business France - French embassy in Japan
  • Advantage Austria - Austrian Embassy Commercial Section
  • Flanders Investment and Trade

At this occasion, business representatives of EU companies will have an opportunity to attend pre-arranged B2B meetings with Japanese companies from the Kansai region. The event serves a perfect platform to meet representatives of Japanese companies and accelerate opportunities for potential business partnerships between EU and Japanese companies.

Last year’s partnering event (see 2016 event video on: ) attracted over 60 Japanese companies and organisations from the Kansai region which resulted in 288 pre-arranged B2B meetings between Japanese and European companies. Meetings were successfully set-up thanks to a matchmaking platform* ( by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN Japan).

This year, the BioXclusters Plus partners will attend the event together with a delegation of companies.
