In the bioscience field, Catalonia has a great potential both in terms of investigation and of generation of knowledge thanks to the research centres of first international order already present. From 22@Barcelona we are working for the biocorporation sector to evolve at the same step as other European areas with a scientific, industrial and innovative activity resembling the Catalan.

Thus, by means of activities which foster these areas of excellence in the Medical technologies sector, 22@Barcelona fundamental mission is to boost the creation and growth of companies related to biotechnology and biomedical engineering, and to attract them in order to develop a cluster with both international and national references.

In fact, 22@Barcelona will develop specific spaces (offices and investigation labs) so that the companies of that sector emerged around universities or scientific parks have a ground to grow and settle establishing the necessary links with those related institutions. These business initiatives will coexist with activities of development and research, technology transfer, training, etc.

To develop these projects, 22@Barcelona collaborates with the main Medical technologies agents in the city, such as the Parc Científic de Barcelona (PCB - UB), the Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona (PRBB - UPF), the Centre de Recerca en Bioenginyeria Biomèdica, the recently created biotech association Catalonia Bio, the Centre d.Innovació i Desenvolupament Empresarial de la Generalitat de Catalunya (CIDEM), under the Bioregió de Catalunya.
