The European project “bioXclusters – EU Initiative Promoting SME Internationalisation Through Clusters has started in January 2012 and it will finish in January 2014.

The project is funded by the European Commission Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry under the call “Promotion and development of world-class clusters in Europe”, and financed under the "Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP)".

This initiative, that will last 24 months, aims to strengthen the competitiveness of Life Sciences European SMEs and their international development, by cooperating and sharing resources among the four participating life sciences clusters.


Together, the participants aim to reach the necessary critical mass to promote internationalization activities and better support SMEs. This internationalization strategy will focus on three countries of interest, for the market opportunities they offer: China, Brazil and United States.

The four bioXclusters regions (Catalonia-Spain, Bavaria-Germany, Piemonte-Italy, Rhone Alpes-France) bring together more than 1700 companies developing their activity mainly in the fields of oncology, personalized medicine, cardiovascular, neurological, infectious, infiammatory and autoimmune diseases. Each region also brings its own specialties to the consortium.
