BIOINFOGATE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETES NEOTEC PROJECT SUPPORTED BY CDTI (CENTER FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY)
Barcelona, December 31, 2019
Bioinfogate is pleased to announce successful completion of the R&D innovation project “DEVELOPMENT OF AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PLATFORM TO ANTICIPATE AND MINIMIZE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SAFETY OF DRUGS FROM THEIR PHASE OF DISCOVERY THROUGH THEIR USE IN CLINICAL PRACTICE”.
The program has been supported by the CDTI (Center for the Development of Industrial Technology) NEOTEC initiative.
The NEOTEC program aims to support the creation and consolidation of technology-based companies (TBCs). A TBC is defined as a company that makes use of products or services that need technologies or knowledge developed from research activity. The business strategy of a TBC requires mastery of scientific and technical knowledge. The most important aspect of the proposals considered for this grant is a business strategy based on technological development (technology must be the company’s defining competitive factor) from the company’s own R&D.
Dr Josep Prous, Jr, Executive Director at Bioinfogate commented: “We are very honored to have been supported by CDTI’s NEOTEC program, and to have successfully completed the surrounding technological and business objectives. This institutional support has proven instrumental in accelerating Bioinfogate’s innovation and growth.”
