Euro BioHighTech 2021

EBHT 2021 is an event fully dedicated to Research Institutions and Innovative Companies that operate in the Smart Health & Well-Being sectors. It will take place on the 27th and 28th September 2021 at the newly established Urban Center of Trieste.

EBHT 2021 constitutes a unique opportunity for your businesses, in terms of presence and visibility and this year it will be even more highlighted due to the partnership with Trieste NEXT. Trieste NEXT, in fact, is a Scientific Research Festival which is held every year in Trieste at the end of September. Under the theme “TAKE CARE. Science for a sustainable wellbeing”, the 10th edition of the festival will offer conferences, hands-on activities, laboratories, exhibitions and performances to students and visitors.

Since 2016, EBHT 2021 offers a very rich conference side, which will include four main sessions: Research, Education, Finance and Policy for Business Innovation in Health Technology. This year, the exhibition will be held online, to have an even further worldwide reach – there will also be an exhibition conference, where innovative startups and PMIs will present their innovative products and/or services in the BioHighTech sector either through streaming or live sessions.

Urban Center of Trieste

The Urban Center is a newly refurbished scientific-technological hub in the city center of Trieste whose main goal is to strengthen the synergies between science, technology and business. The Center is a reference point for recently established startups and spin-offs, a hub for initial support, sharing of ideas, access to a wide industrial network and a guide for managing procedures. Urban Center is managed by four key firms: Bio4Dreams, Biovalley Investments, Polo Tecnologico Alto Adriatico Andrea Galvani and R&B Gate and they boast a network of 28 partners, one of them the BioHighTech Net 4.0 Network.


Trieste, the capital city of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, has an elevated number of universities, research institutions and researchers and therefore it was appointed as the European Capital of Science 2020 and organized the European Science Forum (ESOF) 2020. The high density of researchers (37 x 1000 employees) has grown exponentially in the past 40 years, thanks to large investments coming directly from the Italian government to Trieste, this border city, that was once on the border of the Iron Curtain. The high concentration of researchers has allowed both the growth of a provincial density of innovative startups in Trieste, which is the highest in Italy and as well has helped transform Friuli Venezia Giulia into a strong innovator region.
