BIO Europe 2022 in Leipzig

The Saxon presence at this international fair is also an important opportunity to promote BIO-Europe, which takes place in Leipzig from October 24th to 26th this year. the BIO-Europe is the largest and leading partnering conference for the international biotech industry outside of the USA. It plays a crucial role in bringing companies from all areas of the biotechnological value chain (including biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical technology) together with investors and scientists.

»Leipzig is a hub for innovations in healthcare in Europe. For example, clusters are emerging on the 'BioCity Campus' that drive innovation at the interface between pharma and biotech. The fact that the renowned BIO-Europe 2022 is taking place in Leipzig is logical and of inestimable value for Saxony. The fair brings together the continent's top researchers and decision-makers. Above all, young, up-and-coming companies can make new contacts and maintain existing partnerships in Leipzig. These pave the way for further innovations and medical breakthroughs. The biotech hotspot Leipzig and the Leipzig Trade Fair will be very good hosts and will draw even more attention to Saxony as a business location in Europe,” said Economics Minister Martin Dulig.

»The fact that Leipzig is hosting the international BIO-Europe this year shows that Saxony is internationally convincing and attractive as a life sciences location. With the support of the biosaxony industry network, the trade fair city wants to become a start-up hotspot for the industry. The international focus that BIO-Europe gives Leipzig as a location is an important building block,« explained WFS Managing Director Thomas Horn.
