Swiss Biotech Success Stories

The Swiss Biotech Success Stories Awards are presented each year at Swiss Biotech Day to honor those who have made important and sustainable contributions to the biotech industry in Switzerland. The awards reflect the diversity and achievements of this innovative sector. 

Celebrating and honoring outstanding contributions to the industry

Switzerland is one of the world’s leading biotech hubs and attracts many foreign companies, specialists and investors. It provides over 50’000 jobs in R&D biotech companies and specialized biotech suppliers and advisors; And, together with the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, it accounts for almost half of Swiss exports. To make the industry’s impact more visible, the Swiss Biotech Success Stories initiative was launched in 2018. Selected success stories are showcased to illustrate how Swiss biotech companies help patients, improve healthcare worldwide, and make a valuable and significant contribution to the Swiss and global economy. 

Laureates are individuals or groups of extraordinary merit in scientific, translational, medical or commercial fields, that have a positive impact on the biotech and life sciences industry and society in Switzerland. 

It is essential to share with the public the importance and success factors of biotech companies and ensure that decision-makers understand what it takes for the industry to develop and remain competitive.”

Young talent should be inspired and motivated to take a closer look at the great variety of career profiles in biotech.
