After nine months of hard work, board of professors, students and managing directors of the Biotechnology Business Institute joined together the presentation of the final projects in the framework of the first year of the educational agreement Discover & Transfer.

The new educational model, presented by the Institute, is based on real intellectual property projects and drug candidates, which makes possible a new way of learning focused on practical aspects. The collaboration agreements with the Biomedical Research Institute of Barcelona (IRB Barcelona) and the Fundació Bosch i Gimpera (FBG), both international reference research centers in Barcelona had allowed our students to work with current investigations of the institutions and follow up their discoveries in real plans.

Throughout the academic course, there had been different meetings between the students and the researchers to follow up together the different stages of the business plans, drug developments plans and brand plans from the different specializations. In addition, an expert jury, integrated by a group of professionals from the sector, where responsible of its evaluation and final remarks.
