COVID-19 Virtual Partnering

April 20 - May 6

Accelerating partnerships in the life sciences industry against COVID-19

Today’s COVID-19 crisis requires a previously unimaginable acceleration of output from the biopharmaceutical and life sciences industry. It raises the question about the ability to find the right partner in developing diagnostics, drug treatments and, ultimately, a COVID-19 vaccine. Beyond R&D – COVID-19 also raises a series of questions about the ability to handle the massive scale-up needed to deliver urgent solutions to protect health workers in the front line of the epidemic and patients alike.

The way forward requires an enormous leadership and collaboration effort within the life sciences industry to leave no stone unturned.

The answer? #PartneringAgainstCovid19.

We are proud to announce that we are supporting a practical initiative that aims to accelerate partnerships within the life sciences industry and strengthen the response to this public health crisis. We encourage you to show your support by leveraging within your network and signing up.

From 20 April to 6 May 2020, a unique COVID-19 Virtual Partnering event will bring together small and big players to meet and match their skills and efforts. Participation is open to any organization that provides product, knowledge, or technologies that can help in the effort to develop and produce testing, treatment and vaccine solutions to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will be able to pursue:

  • Potential R&D collaborations
  • Tools for research projects
  • Drug repurposing
  • Partners for clinical trials
  • Biological markers and diagnostic tests for clinical trials
  • Animal and in-silico models
  • New suppliers for supply chain reinforcement
  • Funding and licensing
  • Production capabilities and scale-up know-how
  • Early stage discovery collaboration
  • Adjuvants, carrier systems, and formulation technologies

The event is supported by a consortium of biotech clusters and trade associations and represents a safe, structured and easy-to-use online meeting space for those working on solutions for COVID-19.

Proudly backed by LyonBiopole, Inova, Evaluate Ltd, it will leverage Inova’s matchmaking platform that has been at the heart of major international biopharmaceutical conventions since 2015 and is by far the most efficient solution to connect companies at scale.  

Follow the discussions on social media using #PartneringAgainstCovid19 and #PartnerAtHome.
