International activities: business delegation trip to Israel
Following up on last year’s successful visit, BIO Deutschland is once again helping the Israel Trade Center to organise a trip to ILSI-Biomed from 13 to 17 June 2010 for a German delegation.
ILSI-Biomed 2010 is building on the success of previous years. In 2009, 6,000 actors from industry and science from 35 countries attended the event and 2,500 one-to-one meetings took place. This year’s ninth annual ILSI-Biomed conference will also provide an ideal setting for cutting-edge keynote lectures, company presentations, partnering sessions, symposiums and an exhibition on the industry. Israel offers many cooperation and financing opportunities in the life sciences sector. In 2008, over 500 Israeli high-tech companies acquired a total of USD 2.08 billion in venture capital from domestic and international investors. Foreign capital accounted for just over 60 per cent of these investments.
Members of the German delegation will receive the following support:
- Organisation of one-to-one meetings with selected contacts by the Israel Trade Center. (A list of Israeli life sciences companies and a brief description of their fields of activity will be provided to those interested in advance.)
- Participation in an interesting supporting programme with transfers arranged by the Israel Trade Center.
- Admission to ILSI-Biomed (14 – 16 June in Tel Aviv) for USD 300. This price includes admission to the conference and exhibition, use of the partnering platform, and the congress lunch.
- Participation at the German-Israeli Life Science Committee meeting.
Businesspeople interested in joining the delegation must also pay for flights, accommodation and meals. There will be a discount for members of the German delegation in selected conference hotels. Rooms booked via the Israel Trade Center will enjoy an additional discount of USD 50 on the participation fee. This means that the ticket will then cost only USD 250 in total.
