COBIS has established the world's first elite experimental forum for life science projects. A forum that aims to:

  • enhance the return on investments made – both now and in coming years – in life science research and development
  • increase the number of successful life science companies that raise funding and develop into growth companies
  • create the next generation of expert entrepreneurs in life sciences
  • develop new knowledge about what creates successful life science companies

So why not boost your business development and gain access to a deep, cross-disciplinary network of experts and strategic partners.
