Our aim is to promote Western Switzerland as a world class centre for Life Sciences innovations and to foster growth by creating synergies between academia, entrepreneurs, investors, authorities and new businesses. BioAlps offers a wide range of networking and support opportunities through regional, national or international BioAlps Events and many more Life Sciences Events in the region.
BioAlps, the Life Sciences cluster of Western Switzerland, offers a dynamic network, an innovative and supportive environment, and immediate access to the world of Life Sciences. It comprises an active and fertile ecosystem of research institutions, academic institutions, startup companies and large multinationals concentrated in a small, attractive geographic area with a great infrastructure.
Launched in 2001 by the academic and research institutions of Western Switzerland and registered as an Association since 2003; BioAlps is also supported by the Cantons of Bern, Fribourg, Vaud, Neuchatel, Geneva, Valais, Jura and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) since 2008.
