A combination of presentations and panel discussions created the format for the day which were specifically designed to promote conversations around topics felt to be key in the development of the sector. A vibrant BioMed sector will not only help maximise the Isle of Man's opportunities to create jobs and contribute to the continued growth of the Island’s economy but could also help improve patient outcomes.
Morning sessions took a closer look at a developing biomed strategy and consider what changes could be made to ensure the Island is an attractive environment for biomed companies. Afternoon sessions provided an opportunity to meet visitors to the Island and those companies that can assist them in their biomed ventures.
