BioBusiness Winter Retreat


A new program in our BioBusiness track is the BioBusiness Winter Retreat in Belgium.

The BioBusiness Winter Retreat consists of a three day interactive programme, designed to help PhD students, postdocs and (young) professionals to reflect on the developments in the fast-changing life sciences industry and their place in it.
