Für den human- und veterinärmedizinischen Fortschritt und für die Gewinnung von neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen werden Tiere eingesetzt. Ist das gerechtfertigt? Wann sind Tierversuche bedenklich? Die gesellschaftliche Diskussion, wie man Schaden und Nutzen von Tierversuchen gegeneinander abwägen kann, ist in vollem Gang. Bei dieser Frage gibt es keine eindeutige Antwort. Sie zu finden ist eine fortwährende Aufgabe des gesellschaftlichen Diskurses, in dem die Naturwissenschaft nur eine Stimme unter vielen ist.
The purpose of the event is to show the Swiss companies, what the European research area is doing in the area of laboratory fields of technology and how Swiss companies can participate in these research programmes. The event is in collaboration with Mr. Patrick Courtney, Euresearch and Toolpoint.

On occasion of the 7th edition of the Italian Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy IFIB taking place in Rome, Italy from 5-6 October 2017, the Enterprise Europe Network is organising the Biotech and Bioeconomy Partnering Event IFIB 2017. The matchmaking event offers the chance to meet potential partners in pre-arranged face-to-face meetings and to establish new cooperations in research, technology transfer and business.
The objective of this hands-on event is to prepare ground for consortia building: to give opportunity to future proposers to discuss concrete cooperation possibilities, to present their expertise and learn from each other. Experienced R&I officers will help participants to steer the group discussions.
The event is organized by RTD liaison offices from EU member states and Horizon 2020 associated countries. Registration is compulsory.
Please note that this event is directed specifically towards potential coordinators of Societal Challenge 6 projects and that the number of participants is limited.
