biosaxony vor Ort (biosaxony open days)

Your opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at commercial companies and research centers in Saxony! During presentations and guided tours, you can explore the sheer diversity of the life sciences sector in Saxony – and use the opportunity to introduce yourself to the biosaxony network. Free for members.


We want to enable our network to keep abreast of all the developments and areas of the industry and to actively increase its knowledge. We therefore organize regular seminars and interactive workshops on relevant topics.
For an overview of biosaxony’s workshops and seminars, go to >>Services-Workshops<<.


Together with politicians from regional and federal government as well as representatives of the scientific community and the private sector, we debate the development of the life sciences industry in Saxony. High-level discussion takes place on the basis of reports and studies on the biotech sector in Saxony, best practice examples, current political themes, and recommendations for future growth.


Under this motto, biosaxony hosts discussion forums aimed at both the network and the general public at unusual venues. This series of events is a platform where ideas about biotech research can be shared in an informal atmosphere.
