What's the main ingredients that's made Flanders a world leader in life sciences? It is no coincidence that numerous top pharmaceutical companies have operations there, including major R&D activities. Big pharma such as J&J and Genzyme are located in the same cluster as many privately held biopharma ventures. Some 146 life sciences companies are active in a very small region, working closely with universities, research institutes and hospitals, forming a unique life sciences cluster in the heart of Europe. Ben De Smit, Economic and Commercial Consul, Flanders Investment & Trade explains its success to Fintan Walton.
