Five Strong BioRegions in Baden-Württemberg

Baden-Württemberg integrates the compentence in biotechnology and life sciences in five regional clusters. The regions Rhein-Neckar (BioRN Network), STERN, Freiburg, Ulm and BioLAGO are successfully promoting research and development in this fields.


BioRN Network - world-famous location

The biotechnology region Rhein-Neckar is one of the best research locations in the world for molecular biology as it includes institutions such as the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), the Centre for Molecular Biology Heidelberg (ZMBH), and numerous other institutes.
The region has around 80 innovative companies, most of which are active in the fields of drug development and technologies for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases, making it one of the leading biotechnology clusters in Europe: A network of short decision paths for the further development of biotechnology.

BioRegio STERN

BioRegio STERN - one BioRegion, five locations, many advantages

With an excellent university and research landscape and the large number of innovative businesses, a successful scientific and economic dynamic develops in the STERN BioRegion. STERN stands for the initial letters of the cities and districts of Stuttgart, Tübingen, Esslingen, Reutlingen and Neckar-Alb. The STERN BioRegion focuses its research in the exciting new field of regeneration biology.

BioRegionUlm Logo

BioRegionUlm - Europe’s pacesetter for biotechnological production

The BioRegionUlm is Europe’s central location for biotechnological production. Approximately 50 small and medium-sized companies from biotechnology, pharmaceutical industry and medical engineering have settled in the region. Europe’s most modern and largest cell culture plant is located in Biberach where Boehringer Ingelheim produces biopharmaceuticals.

Embedded in the pharmaceutical location, biotechnology secures 2200 workplaces in the region. A healthy mixture of established enterprises of international standing and start-up companies in the BioRegionUlm leads to a continuous dynamic development with excellent business figures. Research, development and economy cooperate within a small geographic area.

Freiburg BioRegion - dynamics in the country triangle of Germany, Switzerland, and France

The Freiburg BioRegion is an attractive and dynamic region with a high quality of life, characterised by a highly-qualified and a rich business- and research landscape. With approximately 100 companies working in the life science industry, among them approximately 40 R&D companies and over 45 business foundations since 1996, the Freiburg BioRegion counts among the most successful BioRegions in Germany.

The BioTechPark Freiburg offers optimal founding and working conditions. Located in Germany but close to both France and Switzerland, the Freiburg BioRegion is a partner of the tri-national BioValley network which combines the biotechnological potential of the centres in Freiburg (D), Basle (CH) and Straßbourg (F).

BioLAGO - Life sciences at the lakeside

In 2005, BioLAGO became the fifth bioregion in Baden-Württemberg and has since been bringing together scientific institutions and companies in the Lake Constance region, thereby transforming southwest Germany into a biotech location.

BioLAGO is a cross-border network that brings together existing potential in the Lake Constance region on the borders of Germany, Switzerland, France and Austria. At present, BioLAGO consists of 80 stakeholders from research and industry with core competencies in modern biosciences including the life sciences, consumer protection, healthcare and associated technological fields.
