State of the Union 2018

The evening before the annual knowledge for growth Conference we are organising the 4th edition of our State of the Union; a moment to announce new developments and initiatives in the Flemish life sciences cluster and how we position ourselves vis-a-vis the European landscape. After several inspiring talks, there will be plenty of networking opportunities, accompanied by fine food and drinks.
