How can space research help you develop new biotech products? EuropaBio, in association with the European Space Agency (ESA), invites you to a seminar on ESA's European life sciences and biotechnology programme on Thursday 22 April at ESA's Erasmus User Centre in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

Participants will learn about existing research projects in space and how to team up as partners or access space research programmes to develop their own products.

The seminar coincides with the mission of the Dutch ESA astronaut André Kuipers to the International Space Station in April, for which the Erasmus User Centre will act as the mission control centre.

The seminar is targeted at CEOs, Corporate Research Officers, Visionary Business Development Directors, and public officials interested in biosciences.

Places are limited. Please reply by Wednesday 7 April to Lauren O’Connor.
