Third Party Event

Swiss Chinese Life Sciences Forum

We cordially invite you to participate in the online Swiss Chinese Life Sciences Forum, which will be held on June 30, 2021. The forum is co-organized in collaboration of SCCC, Basel Area Business & Innovation and VISCHER AG.

Swiss Chinese Life Sciences Forum

Switzerland is home to a unique life science cluster. Many multinational corporations, as well as a network of smaller companies and startups have located their headquarters in Switzerland, mostly in the Basel Area. The industry is vibrant, with many innovative developments occurring in pharmaceuticals, biotech or digital health.

In China, the life science industry has been growing with an accelerated pace in the last few years, and at the same time, China is moving towards becoming the largest pharmaceutical market in the world. Therefore, the demand for high quality products from Switzerland is high.

But not only is China an interesting export market for Swiss life science companies, it is also an ideal partner for R&D and innovation cooperation. For this reason, a number of Chinese life science companies have started to come to Switzerland in recent years, adding to the existing cluster and creating new opportunities for collaboration, growth and innovation.

During this year’s Swiss Chinese Life Sciences Forum, we will address current key issues in the industry. Guest speakers from Swiss as well as Chinese companies will present insights into the following topics:

How Chinese life science companies set up operations in Switzerland to address the European market

  • Chinese investment into Swiss biotech companies
  • The impact of China’s new “Dual Circulation” strategy on the life science industry
  • Strengthen innovation in the Sino-Swiss digital health sphere

We are looking forward to welcoming you at this year’s Life Sciences Forum!
