The German Accelerator Life Sciences program validated our business proposal from the U.S. perspective and helped us to get access to local key opinion leaders. Additionally, we were able to validate our clinical plans with different clinical experts in the U.S. The U.S. being our most important target market, this has significantly enhanced our exposure to world class expertise.
