Vienna is the hub of the Austrian biotechnology, pharmaceutical industry and medical devices. The Viennese life science sector has developed enormously in recent years. In all, some 37,600 people work at 554 companies, research institutions and other core organizations in the field of life sciences in Vienna. In addition to providing attractive jobs, the industry generates revenues of some €12.2 billion per year. All top 20 global players in the sector operate a presence in Vienna. Many have a sales unit and a clinical research unit in the city that prepares and monitors clinical trials, for example Novartis, Pfizer and Takeda. Besides, Vienna is home to a growing number of innovative start-ups, mainly in medical biotechnology.
This event is hosted by the Vienna Business Agency together with LISAvienna, in cooperation with Life Science Cluster Krakow and MedSilesia Cluster.
