Mona Boyé received her PhD in Molecular Biology from Cardiff University, UK, worked for several years in a Technology Transfer Office in Bordeaux, France, before she joined the industrial cluster Alsace BioValley in 2009. There she is actively building what many see as Europe’s future, a “Europe of regions” that is less defined by national borders but more by economic and cultural clusters — just like the Alsace, located at the crossroads of France, Germany and Switzerland. In this trinational BioValley you’ll find most of the most important pharma and medtech leaders within a 200 km radius — and as an expert in biochemistry and cellular biology as well as a business development professional, Mona Boyé brings them together in concrete border-crossing projects. At Lift Basel 2015, Mona Boyé is serving as a member of the advisory board and takes an active role in the panel “Moving Fast in Old Europe”, discussing what works in transnational European projects — and what does not.
