Life Sciences & Chemical

Lombardy is the first region in Italy in the biological sciences sector thanks to the large number of companies, research and development bodies, human and financial resources present in the area. There are strong synergies with other industrial sectors: food (nutraceuticals, food products for specific rehabilitation, for the elderly, packaging for the disabled). The Lombard Life Sciences cluster aims to create an innovation system at regional and national level, and is the engine for regional innovation in the Life Science sector.
