Finally! Finally, we are back for life sciences partnering in person! BIO-Europe® is scheduled to take place October 24–26 in Leipzig, Germany. This will be the first in-person BIO-Europe since its 2019 edition in Hamburg, Germany. It’s time to build real bridges with real people again. There’s no better place to do that than in lovely Leipzig, the city with more bridges than Venice, at BIO-Europe, the biggest in Europe, and probably the best, partnering conference in our industry.

You what now? Yes, Leipzig. Yes, you may check the map… Yes, that’s right, a glorious drive down the autobahn from Berlin, Germany. In Leipzig they make cars for Porsche and BMW so really understand automation and how to make engines roar! Imagine that legendary engineering prowess applied to your drug discovery engine. Come to Leipzig and put the pedal to the metal for your predictive, preventative, and precision medicine needs. With three out of eight of Europe’s first approved advanced therapy medical products made in Leipzig, there’s a huge heritage in cell and gene therapy to tap into, with the Fraunhofer Institute of Cell Therapy and Immunology (IZI) at the strongly beating heart of it all. Here, they don’t just make cars but CAR-T therapies. Plus there’s plenty of space for growth on the BioCity Campus Leipzig, where science and business come together on the city’s simply magnificent old trade fair complex.

Data more your thing? Leipzig, at the heart of Europe, has long been a pioneer for progress, and is busy orchestrating big data and AI-based diagnostics, in the drive to a digital transformation of the healthcare industry. As the hometown of Johann Sebastian Bach, the godfather of classic music, Leipzig sure knows a thing or two about orchestrating. The Clinical Trial Centre (ZKS) Leipzig has overseen over 350 clinical studies. And it doesn’t stop there, as Leipzig is a cradle for creativity, making great advances in cardiology at the Innovation Centre for Computer-Assisted Surgery (ICCAS).

In short, if you’re into life-changing science then Leipzig’s where it’s at in October and your next click should be this link to secure early bird registration prices for BIO-Europe, giving you access to over 4,000 delegates from the global biopharma community. Get your partneringONE® account revved up and ready for living the Leipzig Lifesciences.

Not quite ready to kick off your comfy Zoom slippers and do international biotech partnering in person again? We get you: so register for our digital partnering (2-4 Nov). But one long word: Serendipity. Doesn’t your heart just ache for those unexpected magical moments that can lead to something amazing? You just don’t get that sitting in your sweats at your laptop, sipping cold tea. You owe it to yourself to head to the heart of Europe and make October the month that led to the transformation of your business.

And if you still need convincing, we understand. But one short word: Beer. You did read BIO-Europe Leipzig is in Germany, right? Biotech started in brewing, and Germany has many of the World’s best brewers. Imagine yourself raising a glass of Leipziger Gose, Germany’s hard-to-find salty coriander beer, after a day of successful in-person partnering meetings, to toast all the fine things fermentation science has given us over the centuries. Prost! Here’s that link again, click now. Danke! Wir sehen uns in Leipzig!
