Pushing the boundaries of
life sciences & health
since the year 1514
Since the days of Andreas Vesalius, the founder of modern human anatomy, Flanders has been on the forefront of innovation in life sciences & health. To this day, the spirit of this 16th-century visionary lives on in the region.
Just take Team Vesalius, for instance. These contemporary scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs from Flanders continue to push boundaries – and here’s how!
Defining Flanders’ life sciences industry as diverse is an understatement. From young start-ups to established local firms and multinationals: the entire value chain – from research and discovery to development and commercialization – is represented in Belgium’s northern region. Thanks to fertile cross-pollination between biotech, medtech, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, Flanders offers a unique life sciences ecosystem that is underpinned by a robust financing landscape and a supportive government.
