Life Sciences Hamburg
Medical technology has always been holding a strong position in Hamburg. Hardly any other German region boasts such a pronounced economic structure and ideal conditions in medical research and development. Here, large companies like Olympus Medical Systems, Philips Medical Systems, Weinmann Medical Technology, Eppendorf AG, Dräger Medical, and Johnson & Johnson Medical develop and produce successful solutions for the global medical market.
But also roughly 500 small and medium enterprises are very well set up in Hamburg, where imaging and surgical technologies are taken to new heights. On the campus of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, the CTC North offers the entire range of clinical research services, making it the ideal partner for the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industry. Together with the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Philips founded the Health Innovation Port (HIP), the first coworking hub in Hamburg focusing on eHealth, health and medical technology.
