2017 Central European Bioforum
This past week, The Quinnipiac Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Quinnipiac Central European Institute, BioForum, and Connecting Connecticut's Science Community (CURE) co-sponsored a one-day event titled "Building International Bridges in the Life Sciences: Hungary, Poland and the BioForum of Central Europe." The event which provided a forum for exploring opportunities in the life science markets of Central Europe, was hosted over on Quinnipiac University's North Haven campus.
Many notable speakers and panelists were in attendance for this important discussion including but not limited to: Professor Tadeusz, Founder and CEO of Bio-Tech Consulting Ltd and of BioForum Central Europe, Catherine Smith, DECD Commissioner, Marcell Veidner, VP of the Hungarian Biotech Association, Daniel Wagner, Managing Director of Investments for CT Innovations, Harry Penner, CURE Director, Ambassador Ferenc Kumin of the Hungarian Consul General, and Carlton Highsmith, Chairman of the Board for CT Center for Arts & Technology.
The Center's very own Dr. Norman Gray also had the opportunity to be a panelist alongside many important members of the Central European life science community. Throughout the day, attendees got the chance to sit in on a number of panels, tour the North Haven campus, and enjoy discussions over refreshments.
