Meet Your Biotech MEPs at the European Parliament in Brussels: October 20, 2015

CAAT-Europe and IVTIP are joining efforts to raise awareness of alternatives to animal testing as a source for growth, innovation, and competition—which until now has been neglected in the European Parliament. After the success of the MEP - 3Rs scientists pairing scheme last January, CAAT is teaming up with IVTIP to bring CEOs and representatives of SMEs to the European Parliament in Brussels to present their activities. "MEET Your Biotech SMEs" will take place on Tuesday 20th of October 2015. A workshop will be organized in the morning from 10h to 12h30 followed by a lunch with the members of the european parliament (MEPs) until 14h30. See below the draft agenda.
