Lithuania Day: Developing Collaborations in the EU - Perspectives on Pathways

Monday, September 16 2013

Location: Catalyst, 300 Technology Square, Cambridge, MA

Lithuania Day at MassBio features a panel discussion on successful navigation of the life sciences landscape of Lithuania and, more generally, the European Union, a showcase of Baltic companies considering collaborations with Massachusetts organizations, and table-top networking.

The EU presents opportunities and challenges to U.S. companies interested in collaborative research, clinical trial operations, or business development activities.  Organizations interested in exploring academic research collaborations, CRO collaborations, clinical trials, or business development in the EU and Lithuania should consider attending this event.  Presenters will highlight funding opportunities for companies and note capacities in Lithuania to support the needs of U.S. organizations.

Lithuania has assumed the Presidency of the EU in 2013. This afternoon event will be followed at 5 PM by a celebratory networking reception, also at Catalyst.
