Integrated research approaches for breakthrough technologies have the chance to fundamentally change the way we manage the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of key indications. Alongside these emerging technologies, opportunities for new businesses are rising. By 2025, digital health technologies and regenerative medicine are estimated to create a EUR 38 bn industry in Germany and EUR 155 bn in Europe alone. Globally, the market is expected to amount to over EUR 530 bn by 2025.

As the underlying technologies develop, many new and emerging industry players are currently entering these fields. At the same time, established players open new facilities that focus on these new technologies. Next to ensuring medical advances to the benefit of our population, establishing Leipzig as an appropriate location for research and industry in these fields is the proposed research center’s goal. For the first time globally, the Center for Medicine Innovation will not only develop but integrate the breakthrough technologies in an single research center for medicine.
