One focus of the Bavarian biotechnology scene with almost 522 companies is the development of new therapeutics and diagnostics. To make it as easy as possible for new BioTech companies in Bavaria to enter the market, networks such as IGZ/BioMed Würzburg, BioPark Regensburg GmbHand BioM in Munich offer individual support, effective knowledge and technology transfer, advice on financing issues and integration into the well-developed network structures right from the start.
