Independent R&D Playground
Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area gives academic, precompetitive, and spin-out R&D groups access to an independent biomedical and biotech research playground, an inspiring community of peers, and a world-class life sciences ecosystem.
A community to nurture your biomedical and biotech innovations and the space to bring them to life.
As a catalyst at the nexus of life sciences, IT, and materials science our mission is to foster mutually beneficial collaborations across discipline and technology boundaries.
Focus on Biomedical and Biotech
Nurturing a close-knit community for life sciences innovation and building strong partnerships among our residents are our strengths. In order to ensure optimum mutual support, resident projects should either be part of or complement our core focus on biomedical and biotech innovation.
Residents benefit from our close ties with key players in Europe’s leading life sciences cluster and Switzerland’s top R&D region. Individual matchmaking and frequent events enable access to a growing network of world- leading academic institutions and global industry players as well as experienced advisors and investors.
Prime Location and first-class Ecosystem
Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area is located at the heart of Europe’s leading life sciences cluster and only minutes from the vibrant cultural center of Basel, Switzerland. Our modern facilities include 5,000 square meters of private and shared labs and R&D spaces. By 2018, Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area will have expanded to five times its current size.
Research and innovation focus areas
Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area aims to gather the most innovative minds and projects in life sciences, particularly in biotechnology and biomedical engineering, sciences, and technologies (BEST), under one roof. Our objective is to maximize the potential of the intellectual and operational synergies between resident teams and their respective domains.
Biomedical Engineering, Sciences, and Technologies (BEST)More
By applying scientific, engineering, and technological principles as well as design concepts to the areas of medicine and biology, the field of biomedical engineering, sciences, and technologies (BEST) will spearhead new innovations with diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
Innovating the use of biological processes, organisms, or systems in a wide range of life science applications will unlock new ways to enhance quality of life and respond to humanity’s greatest challenges.
Life Sciences and Quality of LifeMore
This focus area involves technological competences that contribute to improving health, preserving life, and making life more comfortable.
In order to ensure optimum mutual support, resident projects should either be part of or complement our core focus on biomedical and biotech innovation. Currently, Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area is the home of the following projects and companies:
