Mission & Vision

BioWin is the Health Cluster of Wallonia, Belgium, the regional reference holder for all stakeholders in health biotech and medtech research and innovation projects.

 

The BioWin competitiveness cluster brings together all the innovation system players in the field of health (biopharma and medtech) in Wallonia, with the goal of stimulating regional economic redeployment.

Initially, BioWin’s role was largely focused on the development, selection and monitoring of collaborative research and innovation (R&I) projects involving universities, research centers, academic hospitals and industries.

This role has expanded over time, and today, the cluster is also involved in implementing the sector’s industrial policy (industrial innovation and research, training, support for business growth, etc.). The purpose of this is to develop and anchor skills, knowledge and jobs.
