Preparing for deals and M&A

BIA returns to Oxford March 2023 and we are thrilled to be hosted by UKRI Science and Innovation Facilities Council at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus.

With IPOs continuing to be challenging for life science companies, there is an increased focus on M&As and other deals with larger organisations as a path to continued development. In this event we will hear from a number of recent success stories in the sector, and explore what you need to consider before entering a deal like this, and how you can set yourself up for success.

With plenty of opportunity to network over lunch and refreshments, plus a BIA and sector update from Steve Bates (CEO, BIA), we hope you will join us to celebrate and discuss innovative life sciences in the region and beyond.

We are now unfortunately sold out, please go to the prices tab to fill in the waiting list and we shall contact you if a spot becomes available.
