Life Sciences

Sustainable life science and health location

Zurich has developed into a dynamically growing centre for the life science and healthcare industry. On the one hand, this development is facilitated by an internationally renowned university environment with ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, their innovative spin-offs and a very high density of medical institutions (including clinics, care facilities and research institutions). Zurich's ICT strength also favours the booming digital health sector.


Life Science Zurich Business Network

The Economic Development Agency is a member of the Life Science Zurich Business Network, which was set up for the networked coordination of cooperation with industry, academia and research as well as the public sector.
