Parceria Genopole_internaBiominas Brasil and Genopole announce that the two organisations have signed a strategic exploratory partnership agreement to foster exchanges in life sciences between Brazil and France.

Biominas has been actively engaged for over two decades in the promotion of biotechnology and commercial activities in life sciences in Brasil. In the words of Biominas’ President & CEO, Eduardo Emrich: “We are very excited to work with Genopole. Teaming up with such a reputed European biocluster will allow us to advance our international reach and to support new business opportunities between Brazilian and French companies”.

Genopole is France’s leading biocluster. It was founded in 1998 and has focused from inception on research in, as well as on the development of commercial applications derived from, genomics and post-genomics. According to Pierre Tambourin, Genopole’s CEO: “Our view of biotechnology is increasingly international, and therefore, we are keen on establishing connections with emerging economies. We have found that there are great dynamics in Brazilian biotechnology and we look forward to working more closely with Biominas”.

The agreement between Biominas and Genopole provides a framework for a series of exchanges over the next 15 months and it is structured to facilitate the definition of projects amenable to become concrete premises for the establishment of more formal collaborative partnerships between their organizations, or directly between their biocluster stakeholders. The latter could include other relevant entities in France and in Brazil that are located outside the immediate vicinity of the Genopole and Biominas biocluster sites. The parties will also support actively each other in making introductions to public and private stakeholders in France and in Brazil, in order to promote the specific objectives of their respective stakeholders.
