bioPmed is the Innovation Cluster for biotech and medtech sectors in Piemonte, conceived in the framework of ERDF managed by Regione Piemonte.
bioPmed is based on a community of around 360 companies, 3 universities and different research centres, foundations and associations active in life sciences. 80 of such organizations – its core members – have signed in May 2009 an agreement to create, build, support and animate the local cluster.
The cluster’s coordination and management are entrusted to the Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero, the science and technology park that, since its inception in 1998, has acted as system integrator for the development of life sciences in the region.
In line with European provisions, bioPmed’s task is to encourage innovative activities and research projects, fostering strong inter-relations and technology transfer among the organisations in the cluster, sharing facilities and exchanging know-how and experience, according to a converging technologies approach.
