The BioWin competitiveness cluster brings together all the innovation system players in the field of health (biopharma and medtech) in Wallonia, with the goal of stimulating regional economic redeployment.
Initially, BioWin’s role was largely focused on the development, selection and monitoring of collaborative research and innovation (R&I) projects involving universities, research centers, academic hospitals and industries.
This role has expanded over time, and today, the cluster is also involved in implementing the sector’s industrial policy (industrial innovation and research, training, support for business growth, etc.). The purpose of this is to develop and anchor skills, knowledge and jobs.
Accelerate innovation to:
- meet tomorrow’s public health challenges.
- develop the knowledge, employment and competitiveness of all players in the health sector ecosystem in Wallonia.
- Wallonia will be recognized internationally for its world-class academic, clinical and industrial research environment in the field of Life Sciences. The competitiveness of the Walloon biopharmaceutical industry will be strengthened, and our Region will have become one of the world’s largest hubs in research, development and industrial production of vaccines and biologics. An efficient and competitive healthcare innovation ecosystem will have been created by unifying the hospital and business worlds
