2016 edition: a turnout of more than 300 innovators 

The first DayOne Forum, organized on June 21, 2016, aimed to identify, bring out, and develop innovative projects by biopharmaceutical companies, start-ups, and research laboratories (public or private) specialized in oncology in the surrounding area, i.e. Greater Western France.

More than 30 start-ups from different cities in the Greater South-West region (Nantes, Bordeaux, Limoges, Toulouse, Montpellier) presented their projects during pitches to a very diverse audience, such as the Pierre Fabre Group’s Research and Development teams, academics (INSERM, CNRS), members of the Toulouse Cancer Research Center (CRCT) and the Cancer University Institute of Toulouse (IUCT) as well as organizations seeking to fund innovative projects (Capitole Angels, BPI, Pierre Fabre Fund for Innovation, among others).

Pierre Fabre Fund For Innovation and Nature Open Library: initiatives proposed by Pierre Fabre 


Pierre Fabre Fund for Innovation, designed to finance and support innovative and promising projects in the laboratory’s fields of interest (oncology, onco-dermatology and dermatology) in order to speed up the development of new biological and/or synthetic molecules at the preclinical stage or early in the development phase. 


Nature Open Library, an Open Innovation program, designed to share Pierre Fabre’s expertise in research, development and industrialization of plant-based active ingredients with private and public stakeholders offering innovative projects. In this context, Pierre Fabre offers access to its plant sample library containing 15,000 plants, one of the largest collections in the world.
