Strasbourg’s medical technologies campus is located within the city’s central hospital, in the city centre. The recent acquisition of 1.5 ha of land and buildings will allow it to expand to accommodate a new technopark.
The land, which consists of some 30,000 m² of building land, including 7000 m of rehabilitated space, has been bought from Strasbourg University Hospital by the Eurometropolis for €6 million. It is to be used for building a dedicated technopark for companies in the medical technologies and digital healthcare sectors, and is due to be completed by 2020.
The park will offer modular, versatile workspaces for up to 50 companies ranging from start-ups to medium-sized companies, including subsidiaries of major groups looking to invest in a booming campus. Up to 2000 new jobs are expected to be created.
The new technopark will be a genuine business driver for the territory and will also be an invaluable resource for companies already established in the incubators on and around the campus (IRCAD 2, pH8, Haras biocluster).
The campus, managed since its launch in 2012 by the Eurometropolis, in partnership with the University Hospitals of Strasbourg, the University of Strasbourg and the Alsace Biovalley competitiveness cluster, covers an area of some 30 ha, dedicated to the medical ecosystem and features a wide range of members, from faculties and laboratories to innovation-led companies and healthcare facilities. The excellence of the projects coming out of the campus has resulted in a number of grants from the State-sponsored Investing in the Future plan.
