The global Health and Biotechnology market is a balancing act between growth and change.

Innovation and opportunities for progress are often born out of crises. The Covid-19 global pandemic is redefining the missions and strategies of all stakeholders, public institutions, companies and industrialists, with an increased awareness of collective and individual responsibilities.
