Content

Knowledge for Growth is Europe's largest regional biotech event. Last year, more than 1000 participants representing 330 companies and organisations active in the life sciences (61% of representatives from the industry, 39% of academics) were present at the convention.

The principal ingredients of Knowledge for Growth are networking, keynote biotech and finance talks, a trade and poster exhibition and a Job Fair, giving companies and jobseekers in the life sciences an opportunity to get to know each other. For PhD students, Knowledge for Growth is a unique occasion to meet the biotech and pharma actors in Flanders as well as scientists from academic research institutes, providers of capital, and representatives of services & supply companies active in the life sciences sector.

The Job Fair brings HR Managers of recruiting companies and jobseekers in the life sciences together.
