About BioVision

For over 10 years, BioVision has been stimulating innovative, high-level debate with all the key stakeholders (industry, the political sphere, patient associations, etc.) on the societal implications of scientific progress.

Over three days, the leading decision-makers and experts in life sciences will review major scientific advances in healthcare, nutrition and the environment. They will catalyze discussion between stakeholders (who rarely have the opportunity to talk to each other) on the impact of these scientific and industrial innovations on society. BioVision was created in 1999 on the initiative of the late Raymond Barre (a former French Prime Minister and Vice Chairman of the European Commission) and Francois Gros (Permanent Secretary of the French Academy of Sciences). BioVision receives support from major international organisations, the European Commission, local councils (Lyon City Council, The Lyon Metropolitan Area Council, the Rhone County Council and the Rhone-Alpes Regional Council) and associations, NGOs and companies dealing with life sciences issues.
