Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the global healthcare sector is in the spotlight now more than ever before. Governments try their best to manage the crisis and to provide adequate healthcare for their populations. Despite the challenging nature of these times, we have witnessed amazing advances in the healthcare and life science innovation space.

This year, the Charité BIH Entrepreneurship Summit (CBES) will focus on how to give promising technologies the push they need to pave the way for a new era of medical treatment. On May 11, CBES 2021 will go digital and offer a sneak peek into the future of Translational Innovation for Patient-Centered Healthcare.
Disruptive change is occurring at an unprecedented pace in every area of the healthcare market. International entrepreneurs, innovators, physicians, scientists, investors, and representatives from industry and government alike will participate in four comprehensive sessions:

  • Emerging Technologies for Point-of-Care Solutions 
  • Next-Generation Immune Engineering
  • Tissue Engineering: A Loophole to Fight the Long-Term Effects of Covid-19?
  • Investing for a Pandemic-Resilient Future: How Do You Raise or Make Money without Access to the Healthcare System?

We are pleased to welcome Scotland and its innovation ecosystem this year and to have our partner countries from previous years—Australia, Canada, Israel, and the USA—on board. Our partners and their networks of key opinion leaders and innovation experts will surely add a much-needed global perspective to the 2021 Summit. 

Our event actively supports the Berlin health innovation ecosystem, which is one of the most dynamic economic regions in Germany. We act jointly with the Bionnale 2021 on May 12, 2021 to provide a holistic view on entrepreneurial development and technology support for health startups, investors, and research institutions in this internationally attractive life sciences region.
