From 11th to 17th March, a State mission was held in Canada, to which some members, BioWin, GreenWin and Wagralim participated.
The three clusters benefitted from good visibility thanks to
- Sylvie Ponchaut’s presentation, Director of the BioWin cluster, in the course of the “Biotechnologies in Belgium” Belgian seminar organised in collaboration with AWEX.
The presentation of essenscia on Belgian biotech which highlighted the role of the Walloon clusters.
The aim of the seminar was to promote Belgian biotechs in Canada in order to reinforce commercial ties with the latter and attract investment. Chemistry and life sciences is Belgium’s most important export sector to Canada.
This mission was therefore also an opportunity to position ourselves and manifest Wallonia’s interest for the upcoming opening of international calls by the government of Quebec.
Finally, we make note of the favourable return and the appreciation for the work carried out by the clusters by Walloon politicians, particularly by the Minister President of Wallonia, Willy Borsus.
