Y Science brings together the curious scientific community and the business world to inspire concrete action and contribution to the society in the field of life sciences. The event invites all those enthusiastic about life sciences and commercialization of research for a moment of mutual enlightenment.

Keynote speaker Dr. Ron Seligmann, Senior Advisor to the global AgeTech industry, reminds us that instead of looking at what brought us here, we need to focus on finding the best solutions to take us forward. The keynote will be followed by a panel discussion on the role of science and entrepreneurship as enablers of future solutions.
You will also have an opportunity to meet the inventors behind 14 science-based innovations from the University of Helsinki seeking to be commercialised.
Organised by Helsinki Innovation Services (HIS) & University of Helsinki.
