The Global Village provides a dedicated offering for national and regional delegations from foreign biotech clusters who wish to develop and strengthen long-term and sustainable business ties and collaborations with various stakeholders of the Swiss biotech ecosystem.
The Global Village platform, however, aims at continuous and sustainable collaboration, concrete action plans for collaboration with impact and collaboration with mutual benefit for all involved.
Since the platform was initiated in 2022 many delegations from North and South America, Asia, Australia, and Europe have engaged in the Global Village and outlined successfully essential steps to move collaborations forward.
Use a multitude of opportunities to engage, from initial offerings to learn about the diversity of the Swiss biotech ecosystem, through partnering and the exploration of collaboration opportunities, to concrete activities and long-term engagements.
The yearly Swiss Biotech Day serves as the anchor event for the Global Village platform. 2023 it attracted over 1,800 participants from 40+ countries.
Great visibility and outreach opportunities to other global partners at country or regional booths, on the partnering platform and on-site, as well as at the international networking reception.
Focused opportunities for engagement through tailormade roundtable discussions, marketplace networking and side visits to facilities and stakeholders at biotech hotspots across Switzerland adjacent to the Swiss Biotech Day.
International delegations can actively participate in the Swiss Biotech Day program and thus increase their visibility through pitching and panel discussions.
Follow-ups before and after the Swiss Biotech Day to develop sustainable longer-term engagement plans and meetings at either international BIO conferences or through ad hoc follow-up discussions.
