The biosaxony network represents companies, scientific institutions, and other stakeholders from the life science branch in Saxony. The network pursues the objective of initiating projects among entrepreneurs and scientists, providing services and expertise, harnessing synergies for the continued development of the branch as well as showcasing the regional competences. A specific focus is on supporting the SMEs of the branch; in particular, by coordinating applications for subsidies, organizing workshops and symposiums, providing consultation, and conducting studies.
In early 2016, biosaxony introduced the new Life Sciences Atlas Saxony. By bringing all stakeholders of Saxony’s life sciences industry together on an internet platform, the international image and influence of the branch is to be strengthened and the competences and resources of the stakeholders are to be presented in a transparent manner.
To improve support for Saxony’s medical technology sector, the biosaxony network has teamed up with representatives from industry and research to establish a special "Section Medical Technology" in July 2016.
