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. The LSZ Impact conferences take place every two years. Read about the first two LSZ Impact Conferences 2018 (Translational Medicine in Zurich) and 2020 (The Cause of Health) here.
