Medical technology and biotechnology – two highly innovative sectors which generate synergies and can bring forth cross-sector solutions for the healthcare industry.
The BioRegio STERN Management GmbH promotes dialogue between the two players from the hightech sectors by following the motto “Wirtschaft weiterdenken” (thinking business ahead). By means of “Aktionsplan Medizintechnik” (plan of action for medical technology) BioRegio STERN is supporting the biosaxony e. V partner cluster with almost ten years of expertise knowledge. With more than 100 companies from the diagnostics, medical equipment development and manufacturing, prosthetics, implants and medical electronics sectors as well as a strong research landscape, the medical technology landscape in Saxony provides the ideal prerequisites for joint research and development projects. The objective of this comprehensive collaboration is to further drive forward the development and marketing of innovative biomedical engineering products or treatments and bring forth new convergence technologies in order to strengthen this high-tech location in Germany.
The “go-cluster – cross-clustering” support project of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy BMWi is aimed at improving cluster networking as well as strengthening and developing sectors that are important for the future. One of these forward-looking sectors is biotechnology, a key technology which can also make an innovative contribution to medical technology.
