For the first time BioRiver – Life Science im Rheinland e.V. invited all its members to a summer gathering at the Life Science Center in Düsseldorf. After two short talks, networking was clearly the focus of the event. The first talk was given by Dr. Heinz Bettmann from the RTZ Cologne. He introduced innovative start-ups from the tech park, like Vitura GmbH, who exports a range of German healthy food to China. To give the participants a better taste of the company’s mission products samples, like cereals and juices were given out to everybody.
