What is BIOIB
The Biotechnological and Biomedical Cluster of the Balearic Islands, BIOIB, was born in 2010 as an initiative of the Government of the Balearic Islands and of the Balearic Association of Companies of Biotechnology, constituted by companies in which the technological innovation plays a fundamental role inside his competitive strategy. BIOIB's principal aim is to increase and to reinforce the competitiveness of the economy of the islands in a long term, promoting sectors that contribute to the economic development of the region.
The creation of the cluster BIOIB is the result of the conjunction of all the actors of the triple helix, where there are included the Administration, public and private Hospitals, the University of the Balearic Islands and other generating institutions of knowledge and interface, besides the biotechnological and biomedical production sutructure/fabric. This structure assures the dynamics of functioning of the cluster and allows his development and his long-term consolidation. This way, the improvements in competitiveness resultant of the synergies (as result of the strengthening of the cooperation, the increase of the transfer of knowledge and the participation in national and international networks) will revert in a growth of the activity.
In 2016, BIOIB was awarded with the "Silver Label in Cluster Management Excellence” which is a recognition, at the euroepan level, of the quality of the cluster management and a clear course to move towards excellence.
