BIA are thrilled to be returning to the North East this spring, kindly hosted by CPI. At this event, we will discuss the current need for skilled individuals across our sector, along with how companies can attract and retain talent, and what can be done to further develop the pool of excellent people so that the UK can continue to lead the life sciences into the future.

With plenty of opportunity to network over lunch and refreshments, plus a BIA and sector update and fresh developments from science organisations based in the North East, we hope you will join us to celebrate and discuss innovative life sciences in the region and beyond.
