At the heart of the research and development ecosystem is Fondation Campus Biotech Geneva (FCBG), a non-profit association created on December, 5th 2013 by EPFL, UNIGE, HUG and the Canton of Geneva. Its core mission is to manage the academic, clinical and entrepreneurial entities of Campus Biotech, to host and support research groups, to provide for its funding and to manage common support platforms.
Campus Biotech's originality consists of scientific and technical platforms that support the research and development effort of the entire ecosystem. These platforms are tools available to the community to enable it to excel in its work. They are accessible to both researchers and to partners whether they are based on-site or off-site, further promoting interactions between research groups and connecting the academic community to industry, both established business and start-ups.
