Economic Strength at BIO CITY Leipzig
The city of Leipzig is on the best path to establishing itself as a biotech and health center both nationally and internationally. The BIO CITY LEIPZIG is the most compelling example of this. Five years after the opening of the BIO CITY LEIPZIG, 24 companies from the industry and services have their domicile here, employing nearly 500 employees.
Here are some examples of their core competencies:
- The development and production of diagnostic tools and services
- White biotechnology (industrial enzyme production)
- Stem cell preparation, storage and research
- Process technology & environmental biotechnology
The health/biotechnology/medical technology/life sciences industries also have a special place within the cluster strategy of the city of Leipzig. This is a segment with especially large potentials for growth and significant entrepreneurial potential.
