The main purpose of the BioTech Atelier event is to give a strong push to the Bulgarian biotech ecosystem. Our strong belief is that the biotech ecosystem in Bulgaria can grow and develop and will do our best to speed up this process. Тhus, we intend to make the Atelier an annual event and grow it as much as possible. We are convinced that the key for successful development of the biotech environment is in international collaboration and cooperation between science and industry.
On 25th September 2019 Biotech Atelier 2.0 welcomed 240+ attendees with expertise and interest in biotechnology, IT, healthcare, life science, pharma, regulatory and law.
