On Tuesday 10 October 2017, the "European Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference, Osaka, 2017" will be organised at the Congrès Convention Center in Osaka, Japan.

During the event, business representatives of EU companies will have an opportunity to attend pre-arranged B2B meetings with Japanese companies from the Kansai region. The event serves a perfect platform to meet representatives of Japanese companies and accelerate opportunities for potential business partnerships between EU and Japanese companies. The event will kick off with an opening speech at 9 AM and the B2B meetings will take place shortly after (from 9:20 PM to 3:50 PM).

Last year’s partnering event (see 2016 event video on: http://www.eu-japan.eu/videos/BtoB_event_osaka.mp4) attracted over 60 Japanese companies and organisations from the Kansai region which resulted in 288 pre-arranged B2B meetings between Japanese and European companies. Meetings were successfully set-up thanks to a matchmaking platform* (https://www.b2match.eu/euj-bio-pharma-be-2016) by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN Japan).

To get a glimpse of some Japanese companies which might take part in this year's partnering conference, please see one of the organisers, Protein Mall Kansai's full list of member companies.
