Since its founding, Lyonbiopole has been involved in European health cluster networks and built special relationships with its counterparts to strengthen its expertise and develop new initiatives. The aim is to share its experience in setting up its support tools. This focus also aims to identify gateways to key European markets for members and make it easier to find research partners for European projects.
The bioxclusters Plus (2016-2018) is the continuation of the bioXclusters project (2012-2014). The new project has been selected by the EASME Agency of the European Commission in the framework of the COSME programme (competitivity for SME). This unique European alliance composed of 4 clusters around the personalised medicine, aims at reinforcing the positioning of SMEs on strategic international markets thanks to shared instruments and the building of priviledged links with local institutions.
