CataloniaBio & HealthTech will hold the second edition of the Connection Day on Tuesday 7 May, at La Farga Congress, in l'Hospitalet de Llobregat. After making its debut last year, the day's programme has been extended to a full day.

CataloniaBio & HealthTech  will celebrate the second edition of Connection Day  on Tuesday , May 7 , at La Farga Congress, in Hospitalet de Llobregat. After debuting last year, the day expands the contents of the program and extends to the full day.

The aim of this day is to be a reference space for B2B connection in the health sector , where the more than 225 members of the CataloniaBio & HealthTech community, as well as entities from the ecosystem, can explore synergies and bridges of collaboration in the products, services or solutions they offer. An exhibitor area will be set up where entities can promote themselves and encourage partnering  with the rest of the attendees . It will be complemented by presentation sessions on business initiatives in health and a specialized job market . The conference is aimed at all types of companies in the health sector (biotech, medtech, pharma, digital health and services), as well as knowledge generators who want to value their technology and/or innovation.

 

In the context of Connection Day, CataloniaBio & HealthTech will officially present the Investment Study in the Health Sector 2023 , which the association elaborates together with the consulting firm EY. The Investment Study in the life sciences and health sector in Catalonia, promoted by CataloniaBio & HealthTech, aims to collect the main indicators and provide an analysis of business investment in the sector. We will share the key figures from our study and later analyze the data in a round table with key players in the ecosystem.
