Leuven MindGate Visionary seminar 'Regenerative Medicine : Growing the Future'

‘Regenerative Medicine: Growing the Future’

A regenerative medicine hotspot is emerging in The Netherlands and Flanders.  What visions drive research and valorisation efforts? Two expert moderators will explore the visionary potential of eight eminent speakers and panelists from The Netherlands and Flanders, covering the entire value chain from the research community and clinicians to start-ups and big companies. The seminar hopes to inspire and surprise the audience, creating fertile ground for new insights and contacts that can further strengthen the cross-border regenerative medicine community.

The seminar will be preceded by an open co-creation workshop for cross-border regmed stakeholders, organized by RegMed and Flanders Smart Hub at the same venue. Company representatives and researchers will pitch and match project ideas and funding opportunities and kick-start collaborative and translational cooperation. Separate registrations for the workshop and for the seminar are needed.
