Virchow 2.0

Kick-off Event cluster project „Virchow 2.0“

Virchow 2.0 is one of the new 15 finalists of the BMBF Clusters4Future  open-topic nationwide competition, which will provide up to €45 million in funding for each cluster over 9 years to strengthen knowledge and technology transfer by fostering optimal collaboration among different actors from academia, industry and society in a region.

Join us to develop a successful cluster strategy and contribute to create a novel biomedical AI innovation ecosystem for the implementation of cell-based medicine in Berlin-Brandenburg!

If you are excited about developing and applying

single-cell technologies, personalized disease models and AI/machine learning to revolutionize healthcare,

join a growing network of universities, research institutions, large enterprises, SMEs/start-ups, investors, foundations, patient organizations, policy makers, etc.

Don’t miss this first opportunity to become actively involved in the cluster development and

  • get informed about the upcoming launch of the Open Call for R&D project sketches
  • network across sectors to start new industry/academia collaborations
  • present your tech transfer interests and spin-off ideas

The meeting will be hosted by the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) with the support of Berlin Partner for business and technology. It will be a hybrid event at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB, MDC Berlin-Mitte) and will do our best to host the maximum of attendees allowed at that time!

We are very much looking forward to a day full of excellent innovation ideas, fruitful networking & discussions and your contributions!
