Success for the 1st TRANSBIO SUDOE Emergence Forum held in Montpellier, on September 25-27, 2013.

The aim of such a Forum is to promote and support the emergence of transnational collaborative projects, thanks to dedicated sessions and B2B meetings.

The event brought together more than 120 participants representing research laboratories, companies and technology platforms from Spain, France and Portugal and almost a hundred of B2B meetings were organized.


The participants evaluated highly the overall quality of the program and especially the various speaker presentations, which covered a wide range of issues related to Human health and Agrofood innovation.

The 1st Emergence Forum held in conjunction with the Euromediag International Convention (EIC 2013) allowed an efficient synergy in term of number of participants and provided attendees the opportunity to offer common sessions and a Gala dinner.

A total of more than 340 participants attended this two side events.



The TRANSBIO SUDOE WP4 technical committee will follow up and support the collaborative projects that will have emerged during this 1st Forum, as follows:

  • To contribute to covering the costs related to the travel and meeting expenses needed to define the project
  • To provide support and recommendations to ease the consortium agreement negotiations
  • To identify  potential sources of project funding  (regional, national, international)
