Swiss HLG Conference 2024

 “Back to deal making!”

As access to capital became more challenging in recent times, biotechs turned to partnering as a key source of funding and the pace of dealmaking picked up. During the conference we will explore interesting new trends such as a focus on new therapy areas and AI.

And of course, there will be ample time to network over an Apero Riche at the beautiful Novartis Pavillon.
