CORDIA-EuropaBio Convention 2003

Europe's first true biotechnology convention got off the ground in style in Vienna during the first week of December 2003. Approximately 1,300 delegates from 37 countries attended the Convention, which featured six plenary sessions, 60 conference panel sessions (across health care, industrial and agri-food biotechnology), six workshops, 10 different therapeutic/technology partnering sessions and an international exhibition with a range of companies from across the world.

The conference programme launched directly into the key issues that the European sector faces with the Opening Plenary featuring representation from all stakeholders in the future development of the European biotechnology industry - political, scientific, patient, mainstream industry and SMEs. The EU's Lisbon Summit objective to become the leading knowledge-based economy by 2010 is clearly not realisable on present performance. Even worse, the gap between Europe and North America is widening with Mrs Mary Harney, Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland and incoming President of the EU Competitiveness Council quoting that whilst the US is currently on average "30 per cent richer than Europe", it will be "50 per cent richer by the year 2050" if things continue as they are.
