It is hoped that the trip by a delegation from the Saxony-Anhalt Investment and Marketing Corporation (IMG) and headed by the Minister of Economics, Science and Digitization, Prof. Armin Willingmann, will lead to the development and expansion of trade relations and the deepening of partnerships between scientific institutions. Further information on the IMG trip to Boston and its itinerary can be obtained from the BioEconomy Cluster.
