WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL!!!
To share our exciting program more widely, we are going completely virtual. This drastically reduces the registration fee, which helps partially cover our online hosting costs and provide a great virtual experience.
We are also excited to host a Virtual Science Fair instead of a traditional poster session. What this means is that you can submit any form of media (poster, slide deck, video, preprint, dataset, etc.) to our Zenodo community. Just let us know in advance by submitting an abstract.
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 14!
Open Innovation in Life Sciences 2020 is a premier life science conference with connecting young professionals across academia, industry and decision-makers in science.
The synergistic goals of this two-day conference are:
To enhance the interactions between academia, industry, and society by bringing together all relevant stakeholder groups to discuss topics pertaining to open science and innovation.
To foster open interactions among early career researchers in all life science fields working in Switzerland and beyond as well as to explore career perspectives together.

Education, research and innovation are central cornerstones of our society. Especially in Switzerland, the life and health sciences contribute significantly to economic performance. The new developments in medicine towards personalized diagnostics and therapy offer extraordinary opportunities combined with new challenges. In order for Switzerland to remain a leader in this fast-moving area, we must promote cooperation across the borders of disciplines and institutions. That's why the 'Open Innovation in Life Sciences 2018' conference brings together researchers and physicians, private companies and state actors, ensuring an open exchange on an equal footing. The canton of Zurich supports the conference as part of its efforts to further strengthen the Life Science Cluster in the canton of Zurich.
