The Life Sciences Cluster Region Basel initiative has launched a new platform to increase the visibility of life sciences companies in the region. The web-based visualization is designed to showcase the region to the outside world while cultivating it internally.
The new platform can be used by anyone looking for more information on the life sciences institutions and companies in the Basel region. It was launched by the initiative Life Sciences Cluster Region Basel, which consists of the Basel Chamber of Commerce, the Cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, BaselArea.swiss and Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area.
The main purpose of the platform is to illustrate how the cluster is developing, where individual institutions or companies are located, and which sectors are represented.
“This new tool allows us to showcase the region to the outside world, cultivate it internally, market it nationally and internationally, and attract new companies,” said Thomas Kübler, head of Economic Development Baselland. The platform is also designed to help universities and companies network better.
Presence on the platform is free of charge for companies. “They benefit from actively using the tool and maintaining their data there in the future,” said Thomas Hafen, CEO of Bühlmann Laboratories AG.
The new platform is in line with the Life Sciences Strategy 2018-2021 of the Cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft and the Basel Chamber of Commerce. The strategy’s three areas of focus are establishing precision medicine, promoting startups, and liberal regulation.
