Pooling resources for greater impact – forging alliances for a better future

The challenges faced by humanity are formidable as are the scientific and technical means at our disposal. However, in order to tackle these tasks and reap the greatest benefit from the unprecedented opportunities available to us, collaborating and pooling our resources across borders and organisational structures becomes the paradigm for future success.

The second European Conference of Life Science Funders and Foundations is designed to build bridges and explore the possibilities of forming alliances that will positively influence and accelerate the necessary discoveries and their transformation into applications that benefit us all.

Who should attend?

This conference addresses foundation leaders, private investors, impact investors, policy makers, fund seekers and scientists with an entrepreneurial mindset.
