All projects are reviewed regularly by our Advisory Board of leading individuals from international industry and the academy. In these reviews the projects receive assistance with strategies for product and business development as well as valuable contacts.
A select number of applicants to BIO-X receive financing and the support package. All applicants to BIO-X are offered a support package from Uppsala BIO and our partners in the Uppsala innovation arena to further develop their idea. BIO-X coaches from our member companies are part of this process.
Current BIO-X projects focus on developing reagents, methods and drug candidates for human and veterinary medicine. You can read more about our current BIO-X projects here.
