Section health economy - Your network for health economy in Saxony
biosaxony is the association of the biotechnology, medical technology and health economy sector in the region of Saxony. Its members represent the various companies, scientific institutions and lobbyists working in biotechnology and medtech and the related areas of engineering and material sciences in Saxony. The network is complemented by representatives from the user side, for example clinics and health insurance companies. The network combines the strengths of all member companies and represents their interests in politics and the public. The cluster's tasks include initiating projects between industry and science, providing services and know-how, and presenting regional competencies in order to support the value-added expansion of these cross-sectional technologies and strengthen the economic region of Saxony. In addition, the promotion of young innovative companies is one of the main concerns of the network.
In 2003, the opening of the biotechnology and start-up center BIO CITY LEIPZIG laid the foundation for Leipzig's life science and tech park, the BioCity Campus Leipzig. To date, this has created over 4,500 highly qualified jobs in research institutions and companies, including bio-pharmaceuticals, cell and gene therapy and diagnostics. The 20th anniversary was celebrated with a ceremony on September 26.
