The biopôle organisation
Biopôle SA | Who we are and our role
Biopôle SA is the owner of the site on which the life science park is situated. We were established in 2004 as a limited company by the public authorities of the Canton of Vaud, who are our major shareholders.
We all understand the basic nuts and bolts of a park for life sciences: buildings, laboratories, facility management, etc. This is what everybody expects, and what everybody is sold. We at Biopôle believe this proposition misses the biggest single ingredient that is critical for success: a vibrant community where ideas cross boundaries, generations and disciplines in a naturally collaborative spirit. We offer a world-class combination of infrastructure, added-value services, living space and community engagement where our partners can thrive.
The site has been developed in partnership with property developers so that by 2015 there were 6 buildings completed. There are investments planned to construct several more buildings, bringing the site’s total portfolio to 134,000 m2 of world-class offices and laboratories.
We are led by a dynamic executive team with a great track-record in life sciences, supported by an experienced Board of Directors. Our role is to nurture the vibrant Biopôle life science community.
