BIO 2022, the America’s leading medical exhibition, will take place in San Diego, USA from 13 to 16 June 2022. The EIC-funded SMEs, startups and scale ups have the unprecedented opportunity to exhibit their novelties and connect with industry peers in order to ensure front-end innovation is resourced to deliver better care for patients and high-quality products for consumers.

Following the previous success of the European Pavilion at CES and Arab Health, the EIC OTF Programme 2.0 brings the best healthcare innovators to BIO 2022 in order to network, share insights and conduct business with international counterparts.

We take care of the logistics and framework so they can focus on doing business’’.
