Life changing technologies will be presented in Vilnius

On 26-27 September in Vilnius over 60 companies from all over the world will showcase their products and services: from the artificial human brain project, a microliquidic single-cell analysis technology, a device sending direct electromagnetic impulses into somatic cells to 3D printing technology and advanced immunotherapy products. Visitors can visit this part of the Life Sciences Baltics, the only international life sciences forum in the Baltics, free of charge.

“The scientific breakthrough we have been recently witnessing opens unimaginable life-changing opportunities, and visitors will have the opportunity to witness at least a small share of the progress life sciences have made.  It is very important that Lithuanian science and business move with the major discoveries, and the capacity of the sector is proved by the global acknowledgement – more than 90% of Lithuanian bio-technological production is exported”, says Daina Kleponė, the Managing Director of Enterprise Lithuania, the organiser of the international life sciences forum.

More than half of the life sciences companies participating in the exhibition during the forum will be from foreign countries, such as the USA, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Switzerland, Belgium, Israel, Austria, Italy, Latvia and Estonia. A separate area of the Lithuanian Exhibition and Convention Centre Litexpo will host scheduled business meetings between participants of the forum.

“We see that international exhibitions constantly provide their participants with possibilities for establishing valuable contacts, which encourage further growth and development of our companies and lead them to foreign markets. Stories of success of participants of exhibitions encourage us to pay more attention to the internationalism and attraction of events important for Lithuanian business,” claims Justinas Bortkevičius, head of Litexpo.

Success of Lithuanian companies and universities crowned the previous three Life Sciences Baltics events. Lithuanian companies “Satimed”, “Ortho Baltic”, “Ferentis”, “Probiosanus” launched their cooperation with companies and scientists from Israel, Japan, the USA, and Brazil. University of Vilnius, Kaunas Technological University and Lithuanian University of Health Sciences signed cooperation agreements with foreign companies.  According to the data of the Enterprise Lithuania, on the average, Lithuanian companies and scientific organisations continue their negotiations regarding cooperation with two contacts established during the forum.

The fourth life sciences forum Life Science Baltics organised by Enterprise Lithuania comprises a conference, an exhibition, business meetings and masterclasses for startups.

The main conference speaker is prof. Brian Kobilka, the winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2012 and a professor of the Stanford University. The conference programme include 10 thematic sessions about the main current challenges in the field of life sciences – the mechanism of degenerative and genetic diseases, immuno-oncology treatment, 3D printing technology in medicine, personalised medicine, e-health, laser application in life sciences, research as the impulse for the industry, application of technologies in the field of health care and diagnostic technologies.
