In autumn 2001, the University of Zurich (UZH) and ETH Zurich initiated the project Life Science Zurich with the objective of creating a stronger network for researchers in the field of the life sciences. Today Life Science Zurich encompasses five functional units. The business network is one of them.
The Life Science Zurich Business Network promotes cooperation between the Life Sciences stakeholders in academia, industry and the public sector in the greater Zurich area as well as with other life Sciences Centers in Switzerland and across the world.
The Life Science Zurich Business Network regularly organises events for it’s members, stakeholders in industry and the public sector as well as the scientific community.
LSZ Impact is the brand for conferences organized by the Business Network. This one-day multi-track meeting provides scientists from academia and industry a platform to present their life sciences projects to potential collaboration partners as well as investors. After the first LSZ Impact Conference on Translational Medicine in Zurich in January 2018 and a workshop on Regulatory Affairs in January 2019, the next LSZ Impact Conference on “The Cause of Health”will take place on 3 February 2020 at the Technopark Zurich.
