Science for health 2023: Biology meets technology

Science for health 2023

Last year’s edition of Science for health addressed key topics around the theme of “Biology meets technology”, such as:


Innovations of strategic importance will be featured, highlighting how technology has played a role in their discovery and development. New generations of therapeutics and vaccines with great promise for clinical development will be staged.


Turning innovative leads into medicines: we will discuss what the factory of the future will look like. How can we effectively implement novel tools such as data analytics,  robotics and automation in development of your innovation?


There are certain opportunities and challenges  Belgium faces, in its way to become a leading region. Which regulatory challenges can we envision and what does the ideal investment climate look like? How can we optimally build talent?

You will also learn which technology needs require solutions. How can we use diagnostic tools to develop biomarkers accompanying innovative treatments and support precision medicine? How are data and AI/ML used to develop better drugs more efficiently?
