Join the Holland Biotech Pavilion at WCIB2016 San Diego

The BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology (WCIB 2016) was chosen again by Topsector Chemie for the 'Strategische Beurzen' programme. BE-Basic was asked to coordinate the Holland Biotech Pavilion, on the condition that the proposal will officially be accepted by RVO. We are currently awaiting the final outcome. We invite companies with an interest to join the Holland Biotech Pavilion to contact us so we can start with making a (concept) inventory in advance.
