At the hangar of the Aero Club Esslingen (Germany) numerous guests from science, business and politics met on the evening of July 10th 2014 at the traditional summer reception of the BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. At an international table business owners from the STERN BioRegion had the opportunity to get to know business owners from the Netherlands, who represented the partner regions of the EU projects IN2LifeSciences and Biomat-IN.
Dick de Jager of the Noord-Brabant Development Agency -since 2008 partner of the EU project IN2LifeSciences- praised the successful long-term cooperation with the STERN BioRegion and drew the three winners of a gliding flight voucher.
On May 4, 2014 the fourth and final call for incentives was closed. During this last call the IN2LS Steering Group awarded 28 requests with a financial incentive. 13 SMEs want to gain better insight in technology and market issues by consulting an international expert. 15 SMEs will collaborate with a foreign partner within the IN2LifeSciences network.
During these four calls a total of 216 vouchers were granted: 69 Collaboration incentives, 41 Insight incentives and 106 Meet & Greet incentives.
