Digital Health – Transforming life science clusters     

The BIO 2016 Global Cluster Hub brought together cluster managers and key players from across the globe, with unique insights into the arrival of digital health within their own communities, plus opportunities to build partnerships around specific aspects of digital health. 

CEBR members presented specific examples of digital health cluster support activities, alongside our global international cluster partners and we opened doors between clusters on the fastest moving sectoral development in the world.  You can access all the slides from the session below, either from the Hub page here or individually below.

Moving forward

Building EU-US channels

BIO always creates new ideas for cluster collaboration and 2016 was no exception.  New cluster links, facilitated by the EU-US agreement on cluster collaboration has created opportunities for more formal connections between EU and US clusters.  CEBR will work with members, the EC, the US Dept of Commerce and US cluster partners to open research and business links for mutual benefit.
