The Hellenic BIO Cluster

BIO(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  The Hellenic Bio cluster (www.hbio.gr ) is a coalition of Greek life sciences companies, encompassing corporate players in the sectors of biotechnology, diagnostics, medical devices and pharmaceuticals. The Greek life sciences industry – although not yet as mature as in other European countries – is experiencing a vigorous development phase. Start-ups and spin-off companies are emerging and already established players are increasingly pursuing international R&D collaborations for the development of competitive technology-based products. Greece is proud to host world-class research teams, engaged in leading edge life sciences research and international collaborations with corporate and research players in Europe and worldwide.  The first Greek biosciences trade mission in the USA took place in May 12-15.
