Our story

Healixia is the result of a convergence between ACRP.be, BAPU, BeAPP and BRAS which will continue as a joint new member association as from January 1st 2020.

Healixia is the Belgian community of all professionals active along the life cycle of medicines, medical devices, in vitro diagnostics & other health related products. Members are active in research & development (including pre-clinical, early clinical and later phases), medical affairs, safety, regulatory affairs and market access in industry, academia, investigator sites, authorities, regulatory bodies or in consultancy.

Healixia provides development, education, training and networking opportunities, thus aiming to further professionalize all members and concerned disciplines and by doing so strengthen the life science sector in Belgium. 

Healixia wants to stimulate exchanges of knowledge and expertise, debates on relevant topics and promotes dialogue and cooperation with any other partner or organisation that might contribute to its objectives. Healixia has the objective to represent the above mentioned professionals and to give them a voice in our eco-system.
