Data Analytics for Life Science & Speciality Chemicals

About this event

1 hour 30 minutes

The characterisation of 3D crystals at nano-level, or a mixed compound and the simulation of a bioreactor mixing processes have a common foundation: advanced high-volume and high-speed data analytics.

The life Science and speciality chemical industry has a huge opportunity to implement data-driven development for new materials and process development. This session is a unique opportunity of Entrepreneurs, Decision-makers and researchers to discuss real-life applications. Join us for an interactive panel session on the latest developments in breakthrough data analytics in the Basel area. This event will be held both in-person, in the University of Basel - the Pupella & Innovation Garage, and online.

Engage in a discussion with top experts from Q.ant, Eldico Scientific, Novartis, M-Star Simulations and Qnami, as well as University of Basel, Innovation Office.
