BioVox: shining a light on Belgian biotech

October 19, 2022 Article BioVox

Beer, chocolate, and… biotech! When it comes to life sciences, Belgium excels. It consistently ranks as one of the world’s top countries for innovation and R&D. But Belgians are generally a modest bunch: despite being part of a world-class ecosystem, few tend to broadcast that news abroad, or even within our own borders. As a consequence, the Belgian science sector doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves. Which is where BioVox comes in!

BioVox is an online life sciences news platform, established to help spread the news about Belgian innovation both inside the country and around the world. With a local focus and a global reach, BioVox is more than just a news platform: it is a community – a growing global network that spans academia, industry, and finance.

With a finger on the pulse of the latest Belgian breakthroughs and topics, BioVox collects the best stories and insights in the free monthly newsletter, sent to over 10,000 subscribers around the world. BioVox has an important role to play in raising recognition for the activities of this thriving region, but also in bringing the community together. As media partner and organizer of science events, BioVox helps facilitating collaborations between researchers, industry leaders, investors, and policymakers.

Science for Health is one such event, taking place on November 21 (in Brussels and online), this year on the topic of gene therapy. At this annual event, BioVox and the other organizing partners help to connect experts around a central theme, to promote out-of-the-box thinking and spark new research collaborations. The idea is to strengthen the local ecosystem and create inspired solutions to improve people’s lives (head to the Science for Health website to find out more).

“With a local focus and a global reach, BioVox is more than just a news platform: it is a community – a growing global network that spans academia, industry, and finance.”

BioVox is a non-profit organization, so what keeps the wheels turning (and the quality content free) is the occasional sponsored article, and the stalwart support of Turnstone Communications and its clients. Turnstone is a consultancy agency which has provided startups, research institutes, and pharmaceutical companies with support in communications, marketing, and business strategy for over a decade. With backgrounds in science research, the team members of both Turnstone and BioVox all know the challenge of turning innovation into excitement.

So, if you want to share your news, connect with others, or simply stay up to date with the latest opportunities and insights, then become a part of the BioVox life sciences community! Via newsletter, LinkedIn, Twitter, and events, BioVox helps bring people together and showcase the strength of our science both locally and globally. Because Belgian biotech deserves to be put in the spotlight!
