Industries and initiatives

A future-oriented outlook with continuous innovation marks the Basel Area as an international leader. The Basel Area is home to a thriving innovation ecosystem that nurtures collaboration among stakeholders in key industries where technology and groundbreaking ideas are taking a leap forward.
The Basel Area is the undisputed Swiss leader in the life sciences & biotech industry and this, along with healthcare, are two of our most active sectors of innovation. Another hot area of innovation in the Basel Area is industrial transformation, where new technologies are taking manufacturing and production into the next century.

Our Therapeutic Innovation initiative is building a dynamic life sciences ecosystem that supports new company creation and enables collaboration with established players in the biopharma community. A key part of the initiative is BaseLaunch, which incubates and accelerates therapeutics ventures to a point where they can raise funding or begin strategic collaborations.

Our Healthcare Innovation initiative, DayOne, is helping to shape the future of health by creating a community of collaborators that aim to change people’s lives for the better. By fostering collaboration, DayOne is building a thriving healthcare innovation ecosystem in the Basel Area. DayOne hosts events, organizes catalyst projects, facilitates connections, and runs the DayOne Accelerator to bring healthcare innovation ventures forward.

Our Industrial Transformation initiative provides networking and educational events and programs within the broader Basel Area (Upper Rhine including France and Germany), and organizes the i4Challenge to accelerate the development of startups, SMEs and new ideas. We are creating a thriving production technology and Industry 4.0 ecosystem in the area.
