BIO.NRW (https://bio.nrw.de/en/about-bio-nrw/) is the official network for biotechnology and life sciences in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW).
We actively promote the continuous development of the industrial and academic biotech sector in NRW, which is already one of the leading ones in Germany.
BIO.NRW initiates and supports collaborations between all players in the fields of pharmaceutical biotechnology (BIO.NRW.red), bioeconomy and circular economy (BIO.NRW.eco) and industrial biotechnology - along the value chains, in order to transform ideas and scientific findings more effectively into forward-looking processes and marketable products.
We support start-ups and SMEs through various measures, act as a point of contact for young scientists and thus strengthens technology transfer. Our activities aim to create an effective network for companies and scientists and to provide an event platform for life science topics.
BIO.NRW is the catalyst for the sustainable development of the strengths of North Rhine-Westphalian biotechnology and bioeconomy from one central point.
The following core aspects make up BIO.NRW:
