September 2014 - Issue 2
Following a number of successful events in the first half of 2014, and among them the Emergence Forum held in Barcelona in April, the Young Scientist Symposium held in Bordeaux in May and a Summer School on Medicines dedicated to drug discovery and drug development last July in Barcelona, we look forward to beginning this second half of the year that looks as much promising in events! On the September agenda: a 4th field study on best practices for company creation and development and a 2nd Workshop "new tools to foster creation and development of innovative companies" in Galicia, and the long-awaited BIOSPAIN.
And before we meet again for the Closure meeting that will be held on December 11th and 12th at Toulouse, do not miss the final workshops in October and November!
In a word we may only wish you a very good re-start!
