Bioindustry Park manages and coordinates activities of bioPmed, the innovation cluster focused on healthcare industry and life sciences.
The so-called Cluster is a group of players operating in a sector-specific area, and its members are coordinated by a managing organization. It was founded in 2009 with the support of Regione Piemonte. The initiative has been funded as part of
the Regional Operational program “FESR – POR Piemonte 2007-2013 Attività I.1.2 Poli di innovazione.”
During its six years since it was started, bioPmed has developed a community of about 300 organizations, including start-ups, small, medium and large enterprises, three local universities, the National Research Council (CNR) and other research institutes and foundations.
Over 70 of these organizations, which are all very focused on innovation and collaboration, are today “Full Member” of the bioPmed Innovative Cluster Association , and have set up an interesting network of relations.
In July 2015 Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero SpA – the organization that manages the innovative cluster on Life Sciences bioPmed – has been awarded the European Certification “Gold Label for Excellence of Cluster Management” by ESCA – European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis – thus reinforcing its brilliant results.
