Networking reception

Saxony - a first class life sciences region

Since launching its biotech campaign in September 2000, the Free State of Saxony has become one of the most dynamic life sciences regions in Germany – and has now set its sights on Europe. New branches of existing companies and entirely new businesses are creating a critical mass of research and business, particularly around the start-up centers of Leipzig and Dresden. The result is the sustainable growth of Saxony as a future-oriented life sciences location with plenty of untapped potential.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide all technology-driven innovators from different regions with an integrated platform to debate new technologies and their economic use in an open, friendly atmosphere. 

Our vision

We intend to develop the bionection partnering conference into an annual technology transfer event in central Germany in order to raise the region’s international profile.

Our goals

We aim to establish bionection as a top conference with high standards of quality in central Germany. We want participants to find out about and directly debate the latest trends and current themes in the life science industry. Apart from addressing aspects of research and business as well as challenging questions, the conference also focuses on the joy of the life sciences.

Our team

Our team will be delighted to answer your questions and note your suggestions in order to make bionection a resounding success.

The organizer

bionection is being hosted by biosaxony, the biotechnology & medical technology cluster for Saxony. The network bundles the forces of all partners, such as companies, research institutes, as well as industry stakeholders and suppliers, and represents their interests in politics and the public.

biosaxony’s responsibilities include initiating projects between industry and research, pinpointing services and know-how, and highlighting regional expertise in order to support the productive development of these cross-cutting technologies. In addition, the support of young innovative companies is one of the main concerns of the network.

The development of new ideas and the expansion of a sustainable technology transfer, for example in the context of the annual partnering conference bionection, are further key areas of the cluster work. Local work is strengthened by biosaxony’s offices in Leipzig and Dresden.
