About the mission

Due to previous successes in the UK psps already has a pre-existing network of contacts within the biotech fields listed above. 

Biotech institutes and research facilities  within the United Kingdom are continuously looking for new international collaborations to develop innovative therapies and medication. The country has had a national incentive program for innovation in regenerative medicine and oncology for several years. Scientists are also looking at the opportunities that data science offers for genomics.

Together with local partners in the United KIngdom Dutch entrepreneurs and knowledge institutions can benefit from the large planned investments in LSH innovation and the NHS (National Health Service). During the trade mission we will visit several leading institutes, companies and campuses in the London & Cambridge area. There you will receive the opportunity to meet with local parties and discuss opportunities for collaboration. In addition there will be a seminar on the development of the UK biotech sector.
