biosaxony – Saxony’s Biotech and Medtech Cluster

Welcome to biosaxony!

biosaxony is the association of the biotechnology/medical technology sector in the region of Saxony. Its members represent the various companies, research institutes and lobbyists working in biotechnology and medtech and the related areas of engineering and material sciences in Saxony. It pulls the different strands of biotech and medtech together, gauges its members’ needs, and represents their interests. biosaxony’s responsibilities include initiating projects between industry and research, pinpointing services and know-how, harnessing synergies, and highlighting regional expertise in order to support the value-added development of these cross-cutting technologies. Other elements of its cluster work include developing new ideas and strategies as well promoting sustainable technology transfer, such as at its partnering conference bionection. Local work is strengthened by biosaxony’s two offices in Leipzig and Dresden.

In 2016, biosaxony set up the Section Medical Technology. Combining biotechnology with medical technology is intended to enable new areas of innovation to be identified, network actors from different fields, and hence lastingly strengthen the regional economic structure of both sectors.

In 2016, biosaxony was the host bioregion of the DBT German Biotech Conference in Leipzig.

In addition, in 2016, the association for the promotion of health care (VFG) and biosaxony sealed the already close cooperation with a cooperation agreement to support Saxon companies to develop products for the health market.

biosaxony is a member of the go-cluster program and has been awarded the Silver Label of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative.

Our members and many other partners from business, research and politics support and actively participate in biosaxony’s work. This enables us to continuously advance the sharing of information and leverage synergy to the benefit of life sciences players in Saxony.
