Healthcare innovation campuses in Germany: placing them on your map

Back to News

Germany is famous around the globe for the production of beer, bratwurst and cars, but the country is also a major global player in healthcare, pharma and chemicals. Starting a new series I will introduce you to several innovation campuses in Germany.

Searching and finding a potential location for a subsidiary is a daunting task for any company. This is especially true for healthcare and pharmaceutical companies looking for a new home, since they have specific requirements which must be built into the exercise: availability of lab space could well be a key requirement, proximity to universities and their research centres another one. The location should allow for easy access to scientists and further talent to propel the company onto the next growth level. Research grants and support from EU programs would be a great shot in the arm for the development of your company. A key factor for healthcare companies is the access to the respective regulatory authorities, in addition to supportive industry organizations.

Berlin will feature with its campuses, but I will also make a convincing case for campuses within or close to Munich, Frankfurt / Main and Nurnberg. Thanks to the federal make up of Germany and its history as a jigsaw of many independent kingdoms and principalities there are many more high quality locations you could take into consideration: Heidelberg, Hamburg, Dresden, Cologne, Aachen, Düsseldorf, Magdeburg….. the list goes on and on. I will stick to my shorter location list around the big cities for now though, as these cities offer important advantages for foreign companies: airports and further transport infrastructure plus an “expat infrastructure” with English speaking communities, events and culture, sports and all the other little bits that add up to an enjoyable city to live in for talent. I hope you will find this new series relevant to your business decisions and enjoyable to read.
