Boehringer Ingleheim is excited to welcome you to the BI Innovation Prize, BI Academy & Spring Networking Reception event where together we can celebrate innovation with our 2022 Boston Innovation Prize and discuss a key topic of interest in our Boehringer Ingelheim Academy session. We look forward to joining you for an evening of celebration, discussion, and networking!

Register here!

In our first ‘in person’ BI Academy session since early 2020, we will be reflecting on the experiences of the last couple of years and how flexibility, agility and resilience have enabled us to adopt new ways of working and continue to support breakthrough science and the innovators that are making that happen. As we emerge into our ‘New Normal’ we look forward to discussing how these unprecedented circumstances have shaped our partnering experiences.
