What Is Hyphen Projects?

In this article, we would like to introduce a befriended company also operating from the Netherlands, Hyphen Projects.

“Hyphen Projects is a private company that, since 2004, designs, develops and organizes conferences, summits, career events and courses, both in-person and online, for the Life Sciences sector.”

This is how Hyphen Projects define themselves. “Life sciences” means any branch of science including lifelike biology, ecology, zoology, botany, et cetera. You might want to think of Hyphen Projects as TED talks for a more niche audience and more in-depth in the support of events. 

Hyphen Projects works hard to create and deliver presentations and programs that support talented professionals and enterprises supporting the growth of life sciences. They help the future leaders in biotech by providing valuable insights into the past present and future of the life sciences industry. They help also the future leaders to work on their professional development.

How Hyphen Projects Developed Over The Years.

Hyphen Projects have been around on the market for more than 10 years. During this time, over ten thousand professionals and hundreds of companies in the Dutch and Belgian life sciences sectors have benefitted through their programs, conferences, career events, training in searching white collar jobs and more. The company has developed a team for project management and marketing & communications, which greatly helps in translating goals into an event format. 

Today, they can help with multiple aspects of an event such as format and concept design, project & logistics management, website design and creation, marketing and promotion, financial management and invoicing, delegated administration and communication, program and speaker support, and sales and exhibition handling.

Hyphen Projects has organized many events including Leiden BioScience Congress, Finance for Growth, Global Scale-up Program, Connect for Impact, Food Valley Expo, Health Valley Event, and Lab Experience Days. If you would like to learn more about any of the events, please visit the services page on the Hyphen Projects’ website.
