Europe’s showcase for inventions

Industry has a huge interest in innovative results from basic research, and the research community has a huge interest in potential industrial partners and investors. Cooperation is clearly essential in bringing promising projects to commercial application. The critical hurdle is sourcing suitable technologies and partners. In Germany alone, an industrial representative would have to contact several hundred research institutes and technology transfer offices in order to make an impression of the technologies on offer. BioVaria’s aim is to bring together the best licensing offers and spin-offs from public research from the whole of Europe and present them to the international biopharmaceutical industry: altogether around 60 technologies and up to 10 startups. 

Initiator: Ascenion

The event was launched by Ascenion in 2008 and takes place annually in the spring, with an increasingly enthusiastic reception from research, industry and technology transfer. In 2018, Ascenion gained 16 technology transfer organizations from all over Europe as event partners. There were more than 250 participants. Potential licensees and investors particularly appreciate the high density of technology offers, the innovative potential of the projects presented and the opportunity to make contact with scientists and technology transfer representatives from many different research institutes.
