Content and Objectives
The INTERREG project "Transalpine Bio Cluster" aims to establish cross-border cooperation in the biotech and medical technology sector. This involves creating a transnational cluster with partners from various fields (clusters, Standortagentur Tirol, chambers, universities of applied sciences,…). A joint platform with profiles of the companies and institutes will be established, two thematic networks (Autonomy and Healthcare, New Diagnosis and Therapies) developed as well as workshops, seminars and thematic events organised to encourage an exchange of experiences, transnational knowledge transfer and to initiate cooperation.

  • Analysis of regional players and existing cooperation instruments
