biotechnological and biomedical cluster of the Balearic Islands

A cluster is the result of the combination, in a geographical area or productive sector, of companies and research and knowledge generation centers, public or private, involved in a collaborative exchange process aimed at obtaining advantages and / or benefits derived from the implementation of joint innovative projects in nature.

Its activity is organized around a branch or scientific or technological sector and / or a market or market segment.

It is, therefore, a knot (loop) of collaboration; a common place and an active agent in a given environment or ecosystem of innovation, which allows the attraction of talent and resources, strengthening existing institutions and companies and encouraging the creation of new ones; contributing, in short, to the socio-economic development of the geographical area or sector in which it operates.

BIOIB, the biotechnology and biomedical cluster of the Balearic Islands, was born in 2010 as an initiative of the Government of the Balearic Islands and the Balearic Association of Biotechnological Companies, made up of companies in which technological innovation plays a key role within its competitive strategy.

Its creation, therefore, is the result of the conjunction of all the actors of the triple helix, which includes the Administration, public and private hospitals, the University of the Balearic Islands and other Knowledge-generating institutions and interface, as well as the business fabric of the biotechnological and biomedical sectors. In 2016, BIOIB received the “Silver Label in Cluster Management Excellence”, a European recognition for the quality of the Cluster management.
