FlandersBio, founded in 2004, is the networking organisation for the life sciences sector in Flanders and represents and supports close to 300 member companies. The key strategic objectives of FlandersBio are knowledge exchange and valorisation, human capital development, internationalisation of the cluster activities and visibility, familiarisation of the public with products derived from the sector and the further development of a supportive environment for the members of FlandersBio.
The FlandersBio network brings together companies with activities in the life sciences – companies that are for example developing biopharmaceuticals, medical technologies or agricultural or industrial biotech products. The network also welcomes research institutes, universities and providers of capital, services and technologies to the life sciences community.
