PTS Hosts MedinBio Forum

The Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) Foundation last week hosted the MedinBio biomedical knowledge transfer forum. The event was attended by more than 60 science professionals who met to discuss biomedicine, bioinformatics, biochemistry, nutrition, biotechnology and sports science, amongst other topics. The main conclusions drawn from the forum were that Granada's science sector is not making the best use of the resources available to it, and one of its major problems is a lack of awareness of the opportunities the province has to offer.

According to PTS Foundation knowledge transfer administrator María Ogayar, “the aim of MedinBio is to promote open innovation and facilitate partnerships in various areas of the life sciences sector, providing a forum for attendees to discuss their needs and find collaborative solutions, creating strong links between professionals as well as new business opportunities and other synergies.” The PTS Foundation organised the event in collaboration with several other organisations, including Andalusia's Regional Ministry of Finance and Knowledge. The forum is sponsored by the Caja Rural Foundation.

The day was divided into three sessions: an elevator pitch, in which attendees presented their projects in no longer than three minutes, followed by a networking session and a series of meetings. Attendees included healthcare professionals, medical researchers, doctors, research groups in the fields of IT and life sciences (biochemistry, nutrition and sports science), and representatives from companies working in the bioinformatics and biotechnology sectors.

In the future, MedinBio aims to be the starting point for a series of informative and participatory events offering an insight into the science and technology underpinning the work done at the PTS.
