MASSACHUSSETTS AND SPAIN HEALTH ECOSYSTEMS LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER
Thursday, September 29th (17h30-18h30)
Innovation ecosystems embrace new solutions, easing the access to the market and softening the death valley. Massachusetts ecosystem is known as the most dynamic environment in Life Sciences worldwide. And Spain harbors a great deal of talented scientists and promising projects. Certainly the connection between ecosystems is worth exploring.
In this session, the main representatives of organizations responsible for fostering health ecosystems in Massachusetts, Spain, Basque Country and Catalonia will debate about best practices to make the most out of local resources (talent, capital, technology and networks). They will also share opinions about what to do to accelerate their growth, as well as to strengthen the innovation bridge between Massachusetts and Spain.
