The TriCAT Spaces Congress software was used for the event, with which the almost 300 participants could visit the virtual 3D event via an avatar. Dr. Verena Grimm and Nina Zabel from BioRegio STERN Management GmbH used this opportunity to present biohymed as part of a speed pitch. In a virtual exhibition room, Grimm and Zabel also presented the individual projects of the biohymed network and informed interested conference attendees in person.
Biohymed started in April 2017 and ran for a total of three years. Under the direction of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH, an active cooperation network with 22 companies and 14 research partners has emerged. The partners involved were offered ideal framework conditions for innovative research and development projects. A total of 13 projects received funding from the Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM) of the BMWi as part of bioyhmed. Research and development projects with a total volume of over eight million euros have thus been initiated in the biohymed network.
