Attend the kick off on Friday April 29, 2022
08:30am to 10:00am
(online session – French)


BioWin, essenscia and CETIC are joining forces for the BioMan project to strengthen, over a period of 2 years, Wallonia’s position among the European leaders in biomanufacturing. In this initiative, the focus will be on the different facets of digital transformation in relation to innovative production methods.

During the kick off, the Agence du Numérique will present the “Industry of the Future” program, as part of the Walloon digital strategy 2020-2024.
Then, the BioMan project will be presented with the concrete steps to support the digitalization that will be proposed to the regional biopharmaceutical ecosystem, as well as the respective roles of the 3 partners in the project.

We hope to see many of you at this session, in order to discuss the unavoidable need to increase the awareness and support of our ecosystem for its digital evolution.
