In presence of scientists and researchers from different fields including Nobel prizes, the summit’s goal is to explore ecobiology as a philosophical, scientific and experimental approach serving the living, nature and people.
Open up the debate, define what ecobiology stands for and provide new perspectives to better understand our world
and its upcoming challenges. Discover how the MedILS and NAOS collaborate to develop the field of ecobiology.

Founded in 2003 by Professor Miroslav Radman and Professor Marija Alačević, MedILS is an independently funded, international, non-profit research institute.
Its primary goal is to breed a generation of young scientists: creative, multidisciplinary professionals trained to “think the unthinkable” and produce that kind of experiments.
Research endeavours of MedILS are primarily focused on developing highly original approaches designed to provide novel insights into the fundamental concepts of molecular organization and functioning of living organisms.
Founded by Jean-Noël Thorel and operating in more than 100 countries, NAOS
is among the top 55 global beauty companies and one of the few ones to have preserved its independence.
By working with pioneers in Health, Beauty and Well-being, NAOS developed
a disruptive but respectful approach: ecobiology or the art of preserving
the skin ever-evolving ecosystem by strengthening its natural mechanisms.
From this idea, the brands Bioderma, Institut Esthederm and Etat Pur were born, making NAOS a major international figure in Skincare.
