The biotechnology sector

Szczecin is rife with potential for developing knowledge-based investment projects requiring cooperation on an international scale. The factors which determine the city’s growth opportunities include its cross-border location, scientific and academic potential, and partnerships with neighbouring countries. These assets attract advanced service centres and foster the growth of innovative technologies in Szczecin. That is why one of the central goals in the new strategy drawn up by the local authorities is to bring here advanced-technology companies. Biotechnological projects can be attracted to Szczecin through the availability of highly-qualified scientific personnel. The Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin University, and the West Pomeranian University of Technology train top experts, also in the field of advanced technologies.
