Pop-up Coffee Sessions

What is the key part missing at virtual conferences? Random meetings at a social event and coffee breaks! During Biotechgate Digital Partnering, we replicate these spontaneous conversations and a chance to meet new people informally. Our coffee break and networking providers are the #Coffeebuddies, with host Prof. Tony Sedgwick, supported by the Producer Graham Combe.

  • 3 timeslots per day to accommodate all time-zones
  • Simple participation via Zoom link provided
  • Short topic discussion
  • Breaking into subgroups and changing different subgroups (moderated)
Workshops and Presentations

A variety of live workshops and presentations will be provided during Biotechgate Digital Partnering. Participation is free of charge for all attendees. You can register with one click on the agenda page, where a link to the virtual presentation will be provided.

XY Factor Competition – Sponsored by MSD

Hosted by #CoffeeBuddies and sponsored by MSD, the XY Factor is a competition where innovative R&D companies pitch their organizations to a panel of experts. Participants showcase what their company has to offer in a short presentation and are judged based on the quality of the concept, their supporting data and storytelling ability.

Two days of XY Factor presentations are taking place at the next Biotechgate Digital Partnering. Winners will be announced during the Friday pop-up coffee break.
