Johnson & Johnson Innovation Roadshow in Germany

Entrepreneurs, academics, tech transfer offices, and other leaders in the life sciences innovation ecosystem from across Austria are invited to join the meetings in Düsseldorf, Heidelberg or Martinsried. Apply before May 26!

Johnson & Johnson Innovation (JJI) seeks to positively impact human health through innovation. We do this by helping entrepreneurs realize their dreams of creating healthcare solutions that improve peoples’ lives around the world. We work side-by-side with innovators throughout their journey, providing a robust exchange of ideas and resources to support their success. Our mission is to create the leading global innovation network to generate transformational healthcare solutions through value-creating partnerships. Our expertise spans multiple sectors: medical devices, pharmaceuticals, digital health and global public health. 

From 12-15 June the JJI leadership team in Europe will travel to three top life sciences ecosystems in Germany to meet in-person with entrepreneurs, academics, tech transfer offices, and other leaders in life sciences innovation.

In each of the three cities, during a special event hosted in partnership with an ecosystem leading organization, the JJI team will present the unique Johnson & Johnson Innovation external collaboration model ranging from incubation and custom R&D collaborations to company co-creation and investment. They will listen to and discuss with local leaders in life sciences, and will also have introductory 1:1 meetings with life sciences start-ups, academic teams and other innovators working on cutting edge science in the areas of interest of The Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies (Johnson & Johnson).
