Sector Convergence in academic innovation and entrepreneurship

How can academic research be applied and be impactful in Life Science in the context of sector convergence? How can we achieve successful cross-fertilisation in academia, especially with tradition tending to favour intercontinental partnerships over interinstitutional collaborations? Are academic institutions suitably equipped to nurture unconventional offspring in Life Science? Are medical students truly trained to embrace the future of healthcare?

This panel gathers successful entrepreneurs with roots in academia, as well as investment and innovation experts, to explore the journey from cross-sector research to competitive ventures that address unmet healthcare needs.
