May 27, 2019


The importance of scientific profiles in a society based in innovation and how their professional development in management can contribute to drug discovery, were some of the main topics presented during the BBI Open Day 2019

The 15th of May the Biotechnology Business Institute organized the first BBI Open Day at the Barcelona Scientific Park with the main objective of increasing the awareness of the importance of scientific managers in the biotechnology sector and the pharmaceutical industry focus in drug discovery in an evolving society towards the innovation as one of the more sustainable supports to the economy.

During the first part of the morning, we had the opportunity to listen two conferences from both, private and public perspectives, on one hand, by Iolanda Marchueta, currently working as global new launches in AstraZeneca and on the other hand, from Albert Barberà currently acting as a managing director of innovation at the Catalan Government.
