Biopôle is a life sciences community bringing together industry and academia, based in Lausanne, Switzerland. It offers a world-class combination of infrastructure, added value services, living space and community engagement where partners can thrive and bring science to life.
The Biopôle Park consists of over 136,000 sqm/1,440,000 sqft of space in which Biopôle's partners can benefit from best-in-class expertise for activities such as purchasing, finance, legal, business development, communications, marketing, and executive coaching.
While it is open to all therapeutic areas, the main focus of Biopôle is on developing innovative solutions in the fields of oncology, immunology and personalised medicine. These solutions can cover a wide spectrum, from diagnostics to therapeutics, medical devices, nutrition and digital health.
Biopôle works with both industry and academia to ensure that there is communal knowledge and appreciation of what projects they are pursuing and where there might be opportunities for synergies and collaboration. In 2018, Biopôle launched StartLab, a 10'750 sqft life sciences incubator dedicated to startups & entrepreneurs (www.startlab.ch).
Biopôle SA, the management and promotion organisation for the park, was established in 2004 as a limited company by the public authorities of the Canton of Vaud. The organisation is led by an executive team and Board of Directors with an extensive track-record in life sciences. (www.biopole.ch)
