  • [01] Presentation by Greek biotech companies in Boston

    Washington (ANA-MPA) -- The opportunities presented by Greek biotechnology companies for collaboration with their US counterparts were outlined by representatives of the Greek companies at an event held at a Boston hotel on Wednesday night that was attended by senior officials of major American biotechnology companies, professors from the universities of Harvard, Tufts and Northeastern, and from MIT.

    After the presentation, a number of unscheduled bilateral talks took place between the Greek and American companies.

    This first presentation of Greek biotech companies and medical apparatus manufacturers was of particular significance as it was held in Boston, which is the largest biotechnology center in the US.

    The business mission to the US was the initiative of the technology diffusion network "Praxi", which was represented at the presentation by Despina Giagopoulou and Vassilis Stamatopoulos, while the visit took place under the aegis of the Greek foreign ministry.

    The events and meetings in Boston were organised by Greece's Consulate General in Boston and the Greek embassy's commercial attache's office in New York.

    Consul General Constantine Orfanidis, addressing the event, thanked everyone who contributed to the success of the presentation, and proposed that it become an annual event so as to capitalise on the success of the first such meeting.

    The Greek delegation also attended a lunch hosted by the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council, toured Northeastern University's research centers, the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR), and the Broad Institute, which is a collaboration between MIT and Harvard dedicated to the study of genomics for the biomedical sciences.
