What's BioVision

The place to present, debate and discover Life Sciences solutions,
to meet Life Sciences’ global leaders
and to exchange resources.

Life Sciences to change our world

Humanity’s formidable challenges need sound solutions. Challenges that affect life itself are the most pressing. People need health. Societies need stability. Our biosphere needs sustainability. Solving these challenges requires genuine dialogue followed by committed action. More than ever, our leaders must engage in purposeful discussion, notably with the broad scientific community. Simultaneously, the scientific community must keep its pulse on society.

BioVision is a forum for those who aim to shape society with Life as their guiding principle. Every two years, under the auspices of the Fondation Scientifique de Lyon, leading global thinkers from the wide range of pure and applied scientific disciplines gather with industry decisionmakers, government policymakers and civil society advocates; all parties present, listen to or argue solutions that reconcile our desire to develop with an urgent need to rationalise. In essence, BioVision is an indispensable bridge between society and science.

Since 1999, BioVision attracts thousands of dedicated sages from all over the globe. Nobel Prize Laureates, Presidents, deans of academia, renowned researchers, CEOs, United Nations officials and NGO delegates gather for this unique occasion to discuss the utilitarian side of the global agenda. They attend BioVision hoping to transform empirical thinking into grassroots benefits.

This focus is precisely what makes this forum attractive to the broader public. In an era where too much time is wasted on claims and counter claims, the BioVision commitment to solutions is both appealing and stimulating.

BioVision, we encourage science to focus on society and enable society to stay in tune with science.

In the heart of Lyon

BioVision takes place in the heart of Lyon, a French city and region with a pioneering tradition in Life Sciences research and industry. BioVision is a forum for those who want to shape our future in a scientifically responsible way.
In 2009, BioVision will pursue its commitment to dialogue by introducing innovative discussion formats.
Identifying a problem is important, finding its solution is critical. BioVision focuses on the latter.
