LifetecZONe and FlandersBio kindly invite you to the open innovation workshop of Euregional Pact II - the Euregional Platform for Advancing Cancer Treatment – on 21 October 2010 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Participation is free of charge.

Goal workshop

On 21 October you can meet the scientists of the partner universities within this project: Maastricht (the Netherlands), Aachen (Germany), Antwerp, Ghent, and Leuven (Belgium) - providing a first opportunity to sense the impact that 5 universities, all involved in different aspects of oncology research, may have on developing new treatments and technologies when they work together.

This workshop will also be a first step towards the creation of the Euregional Platform for Advancing Cancer Treatment, in which the universities will give you access to their competences and facilities. You will be given the opportunity to presenting your question to the scientists in a 1-minute Innovation Pitch.

Registration deadline for the Innovation Pitch is October 10. Others will be given the opportunity to present their company and competences to the scientists during the networking session. More information when you join our LinkedIn group:
