Awex (Wallonia Export-Investment Agency)
The Wallonia Export-Investment Agency (AWEX) is the institution in charge of the development and management of Wallonia\\\\\\\'s domestic and international economic relations. AWEX supports Walloon companies regardless of their size , sector, or target market in every step of their international endeavors. This includes exports, technological partnerships, and development abroad. AWEX is also committed to strengthening Wallonia\\\'s position as the premier gateway for international investors seeking success in the heart of Europe.
If Wallonia counts a number of well-known names such as GSK, UCB, IBA or Baxter, some smaller innovative companies whose success is multiplying (Bone Therapeutics, Celyad, Univercells, MaSTherCell SA, Belgian Volition,...) have also demonstrated expertise that has rendered the region unmissable for the life sciences sector.
Wallonia offers a series of aids for R&D which aim to help companies reinforce their innovation potential, acquire external knowledge for a project\\\'s implementation, conduct a research project, carry out a development project, create a spin-out from technologies mastered by the company but not exploited, protect innovation or even prepare a European intervention application or acquire the Eureka label.
This year we invite four Belgian companies:
OVIZIO Imaging Systems was founded in Brussels, Belgium in 2009. Based on the expertise of the local Free University Prof. Dubois team in digital holographic microscopy (DHM), it developed a set of digital holographic microscopy technologies and developed them into commercial products. DHM technology overcomes the bottleneck of traditional offline monitoring methods and is a non-invasive automated analysis with no risk of contamination and no sample loss.
BellaVie is a Belgian laboratory founded in 2018 by Benoît Ligot and Olivier Raimond with 25 years of experience in the health field, dedicated to developing effective, science-based products based on probiotics, prebiotics and nutraceuticals. Health supplements 100% Belgian food supplements.
We believe Nu.Q® can be a cost-effective, routine blood test for many cancers, allowing doctors to check an extra box during their annual wellness visit along with other routine blood tests like cholesterol. In addition to cancer detection, the Nu.Q® test has further potential applications in clinical oncology. Being able to harness epigenetic information about tumor cell nucleosomes could also help doctors choose the best treatment for each patient and monitor their response and disease progression.
