The Novartis BIOME: A Catalyst for Innovation in Healthcare using AI, Data and Technology

The Novartis BIOME is a place for change. We believe in uniting the best of science and technology to create better healthcare solutions and seamless experiences for patients and caregivers, at scale.

Not to be confused with an accelerator or incubator, we allow teams to co-develop digital solutions alongside specific therapeutic offerings, research activities, and business processes within Novartis. Konrad will talk about a UK use-case and open the floor for start-ups to collaborate with Novartis in the UK and globally.

At the same time, we provide external innovators with the resources and opportunities they need to validate their solutions through access to regulatory, medical or legal expertise, as well as data sandboxes linked to over 2 million patient years of clinical trial data, and in some cases, investment and financing.
