ADItech Corporación Tecnológica has brought together 42 stakeholders of the Navarra R&D&I ecosystem (SINAI) for two days in the Open SINAI Fair, held at the Palacio de Congresos and Baluarte Auditorium. The event, which has had an exhibitors' area and a space for presentations, has facilitated the exchange of experiences and success stories that allow generating new synergies and business opportunities.

The forum also served to give visibility to the Innovation Unit, which supports and channels innovation ideas and initiatives from the Navarra Health Service - Osasunbidea.
During the second day the head of the Genomic Medicine Unit, Angel Alonso, has announced NAGEN-Mx, a project nominated for the best SciencEkaitza Award in the category of Best Strategic Project S4.
More information about NAGEN-Mx
NAGEN-Mx its main objective being to contribute to the personalised screening of breast cancer in Navarra. Through the study of the human genome in different population risk groups, it is intended that those carriers of genes with a greater predisposition to develop the disease be referred to special care.
Navarrabiomed is leading this strategic project in which professionals from the University Hospital of Navarra, the Institute of Public and Occupational Health of Navarra and the company Making Genetics are also participating. The NAGEN-Mx team analyses the genetic information and medical history of each participant to estimate their personal risk and evaluate the most appropriate screening method for each woman.
In this way, Navarra promotes a more effective and equitable personalised early detection programme for the target population. The project is part of the NAGEN Programme, a strategic commitment of the Government of Navarra to implement genome analysis in the healthcare practice of the Navarra Health Service-Osasunbidea.
