What we do
VBU is a catalyst for the transfer of research results into competitive products and services. VBU represents a cross-sectoral network, assisting its members in seeking and finding cooperation partners in all areas of the life sciences both on a national and an international scale.
VBU brings people together, at numerous events on hot topics and by the web-based Life Sciences database G2C - Gate to Cooperation.

Additionally, VBU cooperates closely with other national and international organisations in the areas of biotechnology, pharmaceutical technology, diagnostics and also knowledge and technology transfer.
