How to win in the highly innovative international biohightech industrial system, constantly evolving and fueled by research innovations and new products?


Unity is strength: we are the first company network of companies in the human health sector, officially born March 31, 2016 with the promotion of Biovalley Investments and included in the Smart Health cluster of CBM, that has the role of developing the potential of biomedicine, biotechnology and bioinformatics sectors in the Italian Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Above all, the roof of Confindustria Venezia Giulia, which offers the network services and headquarters in via Casali 1 in Trieste.

We are interested in coordinating and developing the demand for innovation of high-tech and bio-tech enterprise systems operating in the human health sector, in particular in the biomedical, in vivo and in vitro diagnostics, medical informatics and bioinformatics sectors, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, biotechnologies for innovative therapies and for agro-food and for the environment, technologies for ambient-assisted living.

Let’s start with some data. The biohightech sector of Friuli Venezia Giulia involves 5 thousand employees and develops a turnover of 800 million euro, up 4% a year, despite the persistent economic crisis, with 150 companies, some with a consolidated tradition in the health sectors which includes: Health, Social, Home Automation, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, Agri-Food and Environmental.

The international context in which we move is particularly promising, due to the high added value of a highly innovative and dynamic market. This is the photograph: $ 600 billion in turnover with a growth rate of 4% per year, half of which is achieved by the biomedical sector alone and ¼ each by bioinformatics and biotechnologies that generate the highest annual growth rates, close to 10% .
