Hessen is optimally positioned in this promising domain. Our universities, research institutions and start-ups constitute the ideal breeding ground for innovation. In the laboratories of the Hessian chemical and pharmaceutical industry, ideas quickly grow so as to be ready for application. Production is not a distant prospect: Close to one third of Germany’s biotechnological production capacity is based in Hessen.
Since Hessen's biotechnological sector is so comprehensive, it would be prudent to consult The Hessen-Biotech Competence Atlas 2015 which provides an overview of the Hessian biotechnology industry, for more information. It features 169 companies and institutions. Innovation-driven industries such as biotechnology derive sustenance from cooperation between various partners. With the Hessen Biotech Competence Atlas, we aim to facilitate such cooperation, transcending both subject-specific and geographical boundaries.
