IPLS Board Members

A message from our President and Vice President


On behalf of the Board of the International Partnering in Lifescience Society, we are delighted to welcome you to this new web site.


We have a new logo, a new vision and many exciting projects in development to serve our National Business Development & Licensing (BD&L) community.


The IPLS Board, as a representative of 8 National BD&L Groups, works with passion and commitment for our members. Our society is a not-for-profit organization as are its group members.


You reached this web site because you have an interest in Lifescience and in Business Development & Licensing. You can join one of these groups as a member in your country and you will be kept informed about our events and projects. If you don’t have a National Group in your country and you know other colleagues in the same situation, you might want to create a National Group in your country or region, and we can help you to do it, as long as you’ll act as a non-for-profit group. Feel free to contact us.


The Life science industry is vibrant, interconnected, and technology driven. Life science covers Pharmaceuticals, Biotech, Diagnostics, Medical Devices, Nutrition and increasingly digital health.


Our industry is fast moving and very complex. Here at the IPLS we keep our members informed of new trends in Science, Regulations, Business, Manufacturing and Legal matters.


Networking is a key advantage of our membership where we share experience, learn from others and of course complete deals.


We look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
