The German Capital Region’s medical technology, one of the strong pillars of the Berlin-Brandenburg Cluster Healthcare Industries, continues to grow. Over 300 companies are active in the region, with roughly 13,500 employees.
These companies cover the full spectrum of the value chain, from fundamental research to implementation. The region thus provides first-class conditions for start-ups and market leaders alike. With the science and research landscape in Berlin and Brandenburg – unlike any other in Germany – and the highly efficient healthcare system, companies are provided with the perfect foundation for quickly completing the process from developing innovations in medical technology to preparing them for market launch.
Promising collaborations can arise, for example, when start-ups are set up directly on the hospital premises. The close collaboration of companies, hospitals and certain health insurance companies in the development of healthcare solutions in the area of medical technology also offers outstanding opportunities.
Thanks to Berlin-Brandenburg’s unique R&D landscape and highly efficient healthcare system, businesses can rapidly execute all processes from the development of innovations to market maturity — and can count on the support of the WFBB from the word go.
The establishment of the start-ups on the hospital campus is just one example of promising cooperation projects. The close collaboration between hospitals and companies on the development of medical devices — with the participation of health insurance funds — offers excellent business opportunities.
