Being able to hear from both innovative SMEs at the same time as bigger players in a specific market makes the ELIXIR SME Forum a great place to get a sense of the coming trends and challenges in a particular Life Science industry sector — Abel Ureta Vidal, Eagle Genomics,  UK

The ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum was a great opportunity for us to better understand how ELIXIR is targeting the entire life sciences community, including the commercial field, from small companies to global corporations. We experienced an open-minded atmosphere with the synergies of the public and the private sector always brought into focus — Jörg Peplies, Ribocon, Germany

The Innovation and SME Forum was an excellent opportunity for me to find out more about the free tools and services open to my company, and I have built collaborations that I can take back to my company — Morten Danielsen, MS-Omics, Denmark
