BARDA Industry Day
Organized by BARDA
BARDA Industry Day
October 27, 2020
BARDA Industry Day is the annual meeting held to increase potential partner’s awareness of U.S. Government medical countermeasure priorities, interact with BARDA and ASPR staff, and network with public and private sector colleagues working in the Health Security space. This year, BARDA Industry Day 2020 will be virtual and will feature one day of exciting speakers, breakout sessions, and valuable networking opportunities!
BARDA Industry Day is constantly evolving and has been growing from local panel discussions in 2010 to bi-costal educational meetings, a large Washington D.C. based conference, and now a virtual event. Still its mission remains focused — to advance innovation and development of medical countermeasures, bring together potential collaborators from across organizations, share our accomplishments among our stakeholders, and provide BARDA’s vision for the upcoming year’s priorities. The last several years have seen some exciting additions to the conference such as interactive sessions that feature industry partners, expanded conference technology to make navigation and networking more accessible for attendees, and an expanded hybrid events at the BARDA Accelerators. In 2018 we began hosting our exciting Lightning Talks to allow you to engage directly with our audience of industry experts and the response to this opportunity has been overwhelmingly positive. Lightning Talks have resulted in the establishment of formal BARDA partnerships and other collaborations. In 2019 there was the addition of BARDA Industry Day Hybrid Events that featured a livestream of our Plenary Session speakers, and on-site networking and collaborative activities at the BARDA Accelerators across the country. Over 350 additional attendees participated in these remote interactive sessions last year. This year, BARDA Industry Day 2020 is completely virtual, and we will be building on the foundation of technological and interactive changes we have previously introduced to our conferences. Enhanced networking opportunities, Lightning Talks, engaging with BARDA subject matter experts, and interactive learning sessions will all be incorporated into our first completely virtual event so participants will have the same opportunities to connect, learn, and collaborate. We hope you join us!
