Get ready for an exciting adventure at the Swiss Chinese Life Sciences Forum on 14th May 2024! The forum is co-organized in collaboration of SCCC, Basel Area Business & Innovation and VISCHER AG.

Switzerland is home to a highly innovative life science cluster. Many multinational corporations, as well as a network of smaller companies and startups have operations in Switzerland, mostly in the Basel Area.

In China, the life science industry has been growing at an accelerated pace and brings a growing number of innovative drugs and services to the European market.

We're diving into how Swiss and Chinese pharmaceutical companies team up to succeed in a changing world. Plus, we'll explore how biopharma companies get the support they need in both China and Switzerland. Learn all about expanding into new markets and investing in promising start-ups.

Guest speakers from Swiss as well as Chinese companies will present insights into the following topics:

  • Unleashing innovation: Set up operations in Switzerland to foster partnerships between Swiss and Chinese biopharma companies.

  • Building bridges: Discover infrastructure support for biopharma pioneers in both nations.
