About the Forum

“Life Sciences Invest. Partnering Russia” is a successful Russian event aimed at enhancing the business contacts of companies and investors in the area of life sciences.

The Forum has been established in 2012 and is held with support of the Government of Saint Petersburg, Committee for Industrial Policy and Innovations of Saint Petersburg, Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.

The Forum aims at supporting current federal initiatives to develop the pharmaceutical market as one of the key areas that provide a comfortable life and stability, creating the basis for a dynamic economic growth of the country. Unlike most events held on the topic, the Forum does not have a pronounced conference focus, concentrating on the “live” business communication of participants and on arranging the discussions on the most relevant topics for the industry.
