Founded in Amsterdam for its European regional office, I-ARKS is the first worldwide women lead innovator platform in space, medicine and nature’s health.
The initiative came after a thorough analysis of the causes of the reported animal life and species loss over the last 40 years as well as the exploration of opportunities to build new and effective solutions and wins.
One of I-ARKS’ main objectives is to make an exportable, large scale high quality and safe backup of animal life on earth. This will be linked to significant multi-sectorial economic benefits.
Another is to boost innovation in healthcare in an economically interesting an unprecedented way. Today, this is happening on a very small scale. The developed business model is in that sense new.
Volunteers and sponsors have prepared the initial stages of the project. These count some of the top expert veterinarians in the field of reproductive biology and technology, competences that are key and central in reaching the objectives of I-ARKS. The network includes various organisations and people with a background in the world of academia, business, law and space.
