Japan-The Netherlands Pharmaceutical Online Conference

The Netherlands provides an unbeatable location for businesses in the biopharmaceutical industry. The dynamic and thriving Dutch biopharmaceutical sector is characterised by outstanding hubs and clusters linked by first-class physical and digital infrastructure. Home to 2,900 innovative Life Sciences businesses, including 420 biopharmaceutical companies, and the European Medicines Agency (in 2019), the Netherlands is one of the most concentrated Life Science & Health clusters in the world.

How can you as a Japanese Pharmaceutical company benefit from the Pharma ecosystem in the Netherlands and how do you supply your pharmaceutical products to the European patients?
