BioAlps 20 years

BioAlps celebrates its ecosystem's 20th anniversary

2001 | The University of Geneva, University of Lausanne and the EPFL identified the need to promote the excellence emanating from Western Switzerland’s Life Sciences' research institutions and the necessity for the latter to foster partnerships and synergies with the industrial network.

2003 | The BioAlps Association was founded by the thirteen academic institutions of Western Switzerland | BioAlps Members

2008 | The Regional Innovation System of Western Switzerland was created (RIS-SO | ARI-SO) and chose BioAlps Association as the sectoral platform to promote Life Sciences regionally, nationally and internationally.

Since these key founding milestones, the Association has built a strong diversified network and supported Western Switzerland based startups, SMEs, multinationals, academic institutions, research centres, media and governmental organisations active in the fields of biotech, medtech, pharma, digital health, nutrition and cosmetics encouraging synergies and growth.
