Announcement of the Henri Termeer Transatlantic Connections Award

The Henri Termeer Transatlantic Connections Award is an annual award competition for life science entrepreneurs in the Netherlands and Massachusetts. Each year the Termeer Foundation and Health-Holland select two young life science entrepreneurs, one in Massachusetts and one in the Netherlands, who are leading innovative biomedical research activities, and whose programmes have the potential to strengthen transatlantic relations between the two life science regions. Candidates should have already established themselves within the life science industry leading an early-stage company, with a concrete business plan and initial funding in place.
