A brief history of Biowebspin
Originally, Biowebspin developed online tools for Life Sciences researchers such as PubAdvanced, an
app allowing to search publications by influence based on their Citimpact (Biowebspin’s proprietary
scoring for which more than 1 million scores are calculated each year).
Researchers were able to follow authors and use networking functionalities. Academics and start-ups
had to log in to access these apps for free. The network grew very fast, up to 2 million researchers
Meanwhile, Biowebspin’s academic community asked for help to find funding for their research. On
the other side, top pharmaceutical companies reached out for help identifying early stage research
projects through Biowebspin’s network.
As the first results were promising and companies very satisfied by this “new and unique way to know
what is happening directly in the labs all around the world”, Biowebspin transformed its platform to
focus on connecting academics and industrials.
Today, Biowebspin is the leading online Life Sciences partnering platform between academia and
industry and is proud to have members in other 100 industrial companies in Life Sciences.
Our mission is to help academic researchers and start-ups to find industrial partners for their research projects, technologies and licences.
