Due to the success of the first phase of Boost4Health we are proud to announce that the programme will be continued! BioRegio STERN Management GmbH is a partner in the European Interreg project Boost4Health, which is intended to make internationalisation easier for small and medium-sized enterprises from the life sciences sector. The Interreg programme promotes transnational cooperation in North-West Europe. Differing healthcare systems and approval regulations continue to present major barriers to companies’ international expansion. The project extension will run until February 2022 for a period of 2 years. For the project term it will receive close to 600,000 euros to provide entrepreneurs with services and experts for international growth strategies. A skill-sharing network for validating health products is also being set up.
In collaboration with the Dutch technological development agency Brabantse Ontwik-kelings Maatschappij (BOM) from northern Brabant, BioRegio STERN Management GmbH is supporting the economic development of regional and transnational SMEs, with examples including initiatives for strategic partnerships between industries and regions and easier access to financing. It will also be expanding the Boost4Health network with international matchmaking events and making its specialist know-how in the engineering and medtech sectors available to other clusters.
A total of eleven regions are working together led by the Dutch technological development agency BOM:
- Kent County Council from the UK
- Ontwikkelingsmaatschappij Oost Nederland NV from the Netherlands
- Biocat, la Fundació BioRegió de Catalunya, from Spain
- the University of Liège from Belgium
- WestBIC from Ireland
- Biotech Santé Bretagne and Eurasanté from France
