2011 : Infectious Diseases

On Friday 10 June 2011, the 3rd International Biomedical Research Encounters were held at the Marigny Hotel, on the theme of Infectious Diseases, at the invitation and in the presence of the French President, and the French Minister for Higher Education and Research Valérie Pécresse.

These encounters, initiated in 2009 by LIR, were organised in 2011 by the French Alliance for Research and Innovation in Health Industries (ARIIS) and the French Alliance for Life and Health Sciences (AVIESAN).
They brought together 21 human and veterinary pharmaceutical and diagnostics firms for laying the foundations for new collaborations with the 20 teams of researchers from the “Infectious Diseases” Multi-Organisation Theme Institute (ITMO Maladies Infectieuses) chaired by Jean-François Delfraissy.

Below are the documents distributed at that event, in particular the introductory speech given by Valérie Pécresse, French Minister for Higher Education and Research, the speech made by the French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and the link to the video of the French President’s speech.
