Invest in Ghent's HealthTech
Investing in tomorrow’s modern miracles
There is very little humans value more than a clean bill of health. Thus, healthcare is the eternal booming business, and we’re investing big in it. By expanding our health district, promoting our city as a test market for the industry, and positioning Ghent on a global stage, we’re set to become an international healthtech hotspot.
Did you know that in Ghent the 3 sub-clusters in health are all located in one city: biotech, digitech and medtech. In the USA there is almost 1000 km between the medtech (Los Angeles) and the digitech (San Francisco).
Our city is truly unique because of the strong concentration of various fields of expertise in this small region. It is therefore easier to exchange views, collaborate and cross-pollinate here. This growing ecosystem creates an enormous opportunity to engage in co-creation, conduct research together and think out-of-the-box.
Space for HealthTech
Ghent’s current HealthTech cluster is primarily located in the south of the city with room to spare for new business, while more space is currently being developed for expansion in the coming years.
