A strong local sector with a worldwide network – life sciences, biotechnologies and healthcare

Enge Vernetzung von Forschung, Entwicklung und Produktion

Research, development and production are closely linked in Vorpommern. Firstly, highly skilled employees and an innovative business climate attract companies in the fields of life sciences, biotechnology and healthcare. It has been decades since the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern took the decision to support and promote this sector. Today, the sector employs over 70,000 people across the state.

The region offers ideal conditions for sector companies to succeed: excellent research facilities, an optimal infrastructure in several new business centres and a globally active network. Research is focused on the areas of life sciences, medicine and medical engineering, molecular biology, plasma physics, neuroscience and oncology.

There are suitable commercial premises and abundant support for small and medium-sized businesses in the region.

Professionally organised networks such as BioCon Valley® coordinate the skills of research facilities and companies and help to encourage the exchange of ideas.
