Mission Statement and History

French Bio Beach is a San Diego based organization acting as Business Platform and aiming at promoting scientific exchange, networking and partnering between Southern California and European Life Science communities with a focus on France.


French Bio Beach was a project launched in 2006 in collaboration with the trade and economic affairs department of the French Embassy in Washington DC.


The goal is to foster academic and business partnerships between San Diego’s entrepreneurial spirit and France’s expertise in the life sciences.


During a conference of the French Export Committee, Dr. Stéphane Richard signed an agreement on March 1st, 2006 in Paris with the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Industry. The agreement was signed in presence of Mme Christine Lagarde, the French Foreign Trade Minister with Mr. Jean-François Boittin Minister for Trade and Economic Affairs at the French Embassy in Washington D.C. Pursuant to this agreement, Dr. Stéphane Richard has liaised with the French biotech community in San Diego and promoted the French interests there.

Since 2006, French Bio-Beach has participated in the organization of over 40 networking events in San Diego. The purpose of those events is to offer to the Franco-American Scientific community of the greater San Diego area opportunities to gather and thus to create a « virtual Biotech bridge » that encourage exchanges between France & USA.

French BioBeach’s board is composed of a strong network of local and international life science experts.
