by Jean-Paul Scheuren, President, Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster
Luxembourg is home to a young, dynamic biomedical sector, which specialises in fields such as personalised medicine, diagnostics, bioinformatics and eHealth. The sector is of strategic importance for Luxembourg’s economy, and its development is backed by solid governmental support.
The Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster was established in 2008 in order to bring together the actors in the biomedical field and to enhance the Grand Duchy’s reputation as a recognised and attractive environment for biomedical research, innovation and business. It is experiencing strong growth and currently includes private companies, public research organisations and specialised service providers as well as strategic partners such as the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Ministry of Health and the National Research Fund.
Health sciences and technologies is a highly competitive field, and collaboration between different actors with complementary competences is essential for business and research development. This catalogue showcases the skills, activities and offers of our members, and is a useful guide to anyone interested in establishing R&D collaborations and business relationships in the biomedical field.
I thus invite you to discover the capabilities of our members and welcome potential partners to contact the Cluster’s management team. A key role of the BioHealth Cluster is to assist players interested in establishing relationships with the biomedical sector in Luxembourg, or even in locating activities here. We would be delighted to provide you with support, information and further contacts.
