Medicen Paris Region
As a network and life science cluster in the Paris Region, Medicen does not have any dedicated space to host teams on a long-term basis. Nevertheless, we offer modern meeting rooms and conference space for up to 50 participants.
Medicen has a unique, in-depth knowledge and understanding about the stakeholders, projects and initiatives happening in the Paris Region in the field of healthcare innovation. Therefore, we can provide tailor-made introductions and meetings with a collaborative R&D objective, or with direct partnerships and business opportunities. Medicen can also reach out to the key research centres and academics, start-ups and SMEs, large companies, healthcare insurances, clinicians and investors.
Access to clinicians and living labs is a strong added-value of Medicen – a unique interface with the AP-HP (a public network of 37 hospitals in Paris and the largest of its kind in Europe) and various university/hospitals centres.
Oncology, neurology, infectious diseases and cardio metabolism are some of the main therapeutic areas of excellence within Medicen network of stakeholders.
Medicen has a comprehensive offer of services for SMEs to help them in all issues related to their growth and development: business modelling and strategy, human resources management, IP, market access and regulatory, funding and international development. This is operated in two complementary ways:
- Collective sessions and workshops; and
- Individual mentoring with referenced experts and consulting firms.
Our healthcare-specific events and high-level conferences can range from 50 to 1000 participants, and can reach out a regional, national or European audience. We also have demonstrable and dedicated expertise in finding the right public and/or private funding sources for healthcare projects and companies.
We also help companies to access European markets through targeted action, individual introductions or delegations to the main healthcare events (CONHIT, NLSDAYs, BIONNALE, BioEurope Spring, etc).
Medicen offers a unique forum connecting together all the key stakeholders: leading research institutes, innovative SMEs, hospitals, incubators, large companies and territorial authorities across the Paris Region and beyond. With 300 members and more than 200 innovative SMEs, Medicen has an outstanding capacity to reach and connect with the right stakeholders at a regional level when it comes to testing the value proposition and undergo qualified B2B meetings.
Regional and national partners include:
- AGORANOV and Paris Region incubators – including Biocitech and Paris Biotech santé, Boucicaut, ICM (neuro focus), and Vision Institute.
- Paris Region Entreprises (PRE) – the economic development agency of the Paris Region, providing additional and qualified network opportunities.
- Paris&Co – the economic development and innovation agency of Paris.
- France Biotech, SNITEM and French eHealth alliance
Beyond the Paris Region, Medicen has close contacts with the six other French healthcare clusters located in the other hotspots of innovation in France (Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Strasbourg, Nantes, Toulouse), providing additional access to local expertise.
Medicen is structured around five major technological areas: in vitro diagnostics; diagnostic and interventional imaging systems; regenerative medicine and biomaterials; ICT for health; and translational medicine.
