The range of participating technology transfer organizations and potential licensees has significantly expanded since BioVaria was launched in 2008. This year, patent agencies from Norway, Austria and France will join the German technology transfer teams as event partners. 'BioVaria attracts an audience that is truly interested in licensing or funding innovative earlystage projects', Stéphane Mottola from the French technology transfer specialist FIST comments.
