Further information

Internationalization support: Through our cluster the companies can get contacts to Indian, South-Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese biotech and health technology markets.

We provide help with the local support measures, such as innovation vouchers, development vouchers and Smart Specialization funding, including finding partners for R&D, help with budget and road-map, composing the project, reporting and communication with the financier, project management.

We are in active collaboration with EstBAN (and also FiBAN), where we provide support for life science and biotech companies to get funded.

We organize around 15 events per year, the biggest of which is the sTARTUp Day (https://www.startupday.ee/). These events help to bring together different ecosystem stakeholders for communication and discussion of mutual interests.

We promote Tartu and also Estonia in the wider sense in the events we participate. For example, we hosted the Estonian stand in LifeSciences Baltics in 2018 - the biggest life sciences event in the Baltic States. In BioAsia2019, we promoted one of the companies in the startup booth and promoted Estonian and Tartu's opportunities.
