Together for your growth
You and your team are given access to an immense and diverse community of great minds. The invaluable power of a tight-knit community spread over three different sites to support and accompany you on your success journey.
The Basel Area is considered one of the most important centers for the global health-care industry. The region counts 700 life science companies and a workforce of more than 33,000 well-trained specialists. It prospers thanks to a unique combination of top-grade universities and research organizations, start-ups with ground-breaking ideas, highly innovative SMEs and headquarters of leading global players. The steady economic growth of the area is based on a strong foundation of entrepreneurial thinking, creativity and the combined knowledge of the great minds uniting here for research, development and production.
