Statement on the 9th BAC on March 9th, 2020
Due to the spread of the corona virus, the organization of public events is also under discussion in Germany. The BIO.NRW Business Angel Congress planned for next Monday is a smaller event and we have decided to have the congress take place as planned, taking into account the currently announced officially communicated preventive measures.
In terms of content, this congress may even help to react better to future pandemics, since it is biotechnology in particular that offers solutions and products from start-ups and larger companies for the development of vaccines and antibody therapies. And the BIO.NRW Business Angel Congress aims to finance exactly this target group, whereby the current crisis reflects the importance and importance for human and animal health. This year, the program particularly addresses the need for international and regional participants to work together across borders.
