Meet In Italy for Life Sciences 2016

MIT4LS2014 - the beginning :

Initially thought as a regional event, the idea of Tuscany Life Sciences Cluster and Confindustria Toscana soon found the support and interest from other important main organisers operating in the life sciences sector, Assobiomedica, Assobiotec, Assolombarda, Sviluppo Lazio (now Lazio Innova), Farmindustria, Invest in Tuscany, ICE, as well as the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and other regional and national institutions to be scaled up at national and international level.

Thank to the continous work of the main organisers in coordinating the initiative and the support of the several co-organizing partners, the event took place in Florence on March 31 - April 2 2014, attracting 150 participants from 14 countries, who expressed great satisfaction and very good feedbacks regarding the quality of the meetings.

That great results set the basis to make the organisers start planning the next two editions, the second in Milan (2015) and the third in Rome (2016).
