The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) has partnered with Spanish Bioindustry Association (AseBio) to support the intersection of economic, technological and business areas of biotechnology and biomedicine.
As part of this partnership, SLAS will support BioSpain 2021 as a sponsor between September 27 and October 1, 2021 in Pamplona-Iruña, Spain. The digital event will be held in English and offer on-demand presentations over the course of four days. BioSpain will also include an SLAS-sponsored Innovation AveNEW session, where one company will be selected to participate in Innvoation AveNEW at the SLAS2022 International Conference and Exhibition in Boston or SLAS Europe 2022 in Dublin.
SLAS CEO Vicki Loise said: “This partnership will enhance both of our efforts to support and grow the life sciences start-up community and offer cutting-edge education. SLAS looks forward to continuing to build our community in Spain and especially looks forward to hosting its Europe Conference in Barcelona again in 2024.”
Loise will participate in on a panel entitled, “The Role of Associations as Industry Growth Drivers: Achievements & Future Strategies” on September 27. SLAS will also be represented in a session on September 29, “Advancing Towards Smarter Screening & Drug Development: Innovations in High Throughput Screening Platforms.”
Ion Arocena, CEO of AseBio, said: “Scientific research and discovery through laboratory technology is a key area for AseBio members and for the development of the biotech industry. Our partnership with SLAS will allow us to work together on common goals, create business and scientific opportunities for our members through our events and contribute to SLAS’s global community building efforts. We are extremely thankful for SLAS’s support with BioSpain as we are eager to contribute to the SLAS European Conference and Exhibition success in Spain in 2024.”
