Since 2005, Bioindustry Park has been involved in several projects and development initiatives at provincial, regional, national, European, and international level.
In this section, we briefly described different initiatives.
- Innovation and technology transfer
- Startup and acceleration
The project was focused – as part of the life science clusters – on the creation of internationally-supported tools for the development of companies operating in the field of life sciences.
The project ended in 2012.
The project aims at awarding a professional status to the clusters management of Piemonte through training and certification activities (ESCA). The local partner is Finpiemonte; in this project bioPmed has been able to apply for the Gold certification and received it in July 2015, as well as to take part in the training activities of the European Foundation for Cluster Excellence.
A project focused on the creation of a biotech-medtech cluster network made up of 5 countries in the Alpine region (France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Germany) to foster the development of innovative companies. The project ended in 2011.
The project aimed to strengthen the competitiveness of SMEs in the Life Science sector through the production, development, and provision of linguistic and cultural resources. The project ended in 2009.
The project aimed to develop a 2nd level Master in Biocomputing. The role of BiPCa was to create a link between training activities and companies, and to act as a player in the training part dedicated to the economic aspects and the technology transfer about biotechnology. The project ended in 2012.
Project in collaboration with Biocat (ES), Lyonbiopole (F) and BioM (D) to organize a shared stimulus and support for the internationalization of SMEs in non-European countries (Brazil, China, USA). It ended in January 2014, but the activities continues through the BioXclusters Alliance.
A project to support the Tunisian Minister of Industry to foster the growth of the “Tecnopoli” (Sousse, Gabes, Monastir and Bizerte) by developing a competitive and sustainable service platform (the activity is coordinated by the Environment Park).
DIADI is a project carried out by Regione Piemonte designed to support the competitiveness of SMEs located in industrial declined areas in Piemonte through innovation and technology transfer projects and services.
The main purpose of the project is to improve the cluster management capability and efficiency through collaboration and implementation of the systemic thinking.
On-going project, started at the end of 2016.
Bioindustry Park has been part of the “Polo Biotecnologie Piemonte,” a group of educational institutions, training agencies, universities, research centers, companies, and associations. Their goal is promoting the advancement of technological innovation and the secondary technical training of employees to improve their knowledge in science and technologies in Life Sciences.
Initiative launched in 2013 after a call for bids by the European Cluster Cooperation Platform in collaboration with LyonBiopole, BioCat, BioM and Health Scotland to prepare for future European calls.
With a partnership of 12 organizations, BiPCa has been involved in the preparation of the project proposal and as an operational partner for the activation of ITS – Istituto Tecnico Superiore operating in the Life Sciences sector. On-going project, about to enter the implementation phase.
The project aimed at enhancing the competitiveness of life science businesses through the access and participation to research programs, encouraging networking and promoting transnational cooperation among companies. The project ended in 2008.
Bioindustry Park is the leader of the Polo Provinciale di Innovazione and the LIMA project – Integrated Laboratory of Applied Methodologies – is located in the Park. LIMA is anopen-access platform designed to stimulate the innovative growth of SMEs in the biomedical and biotechnology fields and facilitate the integration of young researchers.
Bioindustry Park took part in the research project called “PROMETEO, which is the acronym of Design and Development of innovative technological platforms and optimization of PROcesses for Regenerative MEdicine Applications in Ormaxillofacial, EmaTological, NEurological and CardiOlogic “.
