The German Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Delegation in Australia

We are thrilled to welcome a delegation of five German companies in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and in laboratory technology to Australia at the end of June 2024. The delegation as part of the Healthcare Industry Export Initiative, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), aims to bolster collaboration between German enterprises specializing in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and laboratory technology, and the burgeoning Australian market.

About the Event:

Our delegation is geared towards facilitating concrete business engagements with potential partners in Sydney and Melbourne, the vibrant hubs of Australian commerce. As part of this journey, we are organizing an industry conference and networking event in Sydney, offering a platform for the participating companies to showcase their products, technologies, and services to a discerning Australian audience – you!

This gathering welcomes stakeholders from diverse backgrounds - industry, governmental, academic, and research representatives. Your participation and input will be welcome to strengthen and foster collaborations that drive innovation forward.
