Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster

 

The Luxembourg BioHealth Cluster is a young emerging Cluster aiming to reinforce and capitalise on the National Strategy developed by the Government to achieve scientific excellence in molecular diagnostics, the cornerstone of personalised medicine, and to enhance the Grand Duchy's reputation as a recognised and attractive environment for biomedical research, development, innovation (RDI) and business.

Our members are R&D companies, public research organisations, laboratories, hospitals and other actors (patients associations, providers of capital and services…) based in Luxembourg whose activities are related to Health Sciences and Technologies. With a principal focus on molecular diagnostics, the Cluster’s umbrella also covers other RDI/business domains that are key elements in an integrated patient-based personalised medicine approach, such as new therapeutics, bioinformatics, medical device and telemedicine. Supporting this dynamic and steadily growing biocommunity is our main objective. Therefore, we provide our members with a portfolio of added-value activities and services to support them in their daily RDI and/or business challenges and to increase their national and international visibility.
