BIO-Europe is the largest partnership conference dealing with biotechnology in Europe. The focus is on pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and finance. In 2022 BIO-EUROPE will be held in Leipzig, Germany, October 24–26, 2022. This will be the first face-to-face edition of the event since 2019. Therefore, take the opportunity to visit the conference and get to know the attractive life sciences region of Saxony at the same time. At Saxony’s joint company booth – organized by the biosaxony cluster in cooperation with the State of Saxony, the City and Region of Leipzig, as well as the Saxony Trade & Invest Corp. –, a total of 16 companies, research institutes and cluster organizations will present themselves.

Saxony has invested more than one billion euros into developing the region into a very special and, above all, an exceptionally dynamic life sciences location. More than 300 commercial enterprises and 30 research institutions with about 200 workgroups and 15,500 employees from 40 countries are working on innovative solutions for human health here today. This emerging life science region, in the heart of Germany, will provide access to new business opportunities that have yet been discovered.

If you are planning your trip to Leipzig, arrive a few days early and use the time to get to know the hotspots of the life sciences cluster in Dresden and Leipzig. The teams of the Saxony Trade & Invest and Germany Trade & Invest corporations offer you a free site visit program including B2B meetings with Saxon decision makers.
