Less than a year ago, ADEBAG assessed its 10 years of existence and announced that it had come of age, just as its 60 or so members had. It congratulated itself for having succeeded in one year in creating a veritable health industry in the Grenoble basin structured around three components: biotech*, medtech** and e-health.* Biotechnologies ** medical technologies
To meet the demands of its members, the association has created a new identity, called MEDIC@LPS and clearly stated its objectives:
“This name conveys the identity of our sector as well as our geographical origins. It is easier to remember, especially abroad, and can be identified much more quickly. It is also marks a new era for the association, 12 years after it was created,” commented Valérie Ayache, Executive Director of MEDIC@LPS, who has headed the association from its inception.
In its new strategy presented in early 2011, ADEBAG stated its determination to reinforce the development of the Grenoble-Isère health industry on the international market. It reached a major milestone in early 2012 when it opened an office in Boston. It is headed by Agnès Aizier, who holds a degree in systems for biomedical technologies from the Phelma engineering school (Grenoble-INP), and joined ADEBAG in 2011. The office, which received the backing of the Rhône-Alpes region, was developed with two pilot companies: EVEON and FLUOPTICS. It has been created to provide long-term support for companies on the North American market in a secure, collaborative and progressive manner. This presence at the heart of the world’s leading biotechnology and biomedical technology hub will provide all ADEBAG entities and members with contacts and relevant advice for developing on the American market. It is a long-term action that will extend to the other companies of the cluster that have already expressed an interest in this type of support or for more specific actions.
On May 31 and June 1 this year, Grenoble will host the international conference, EuroMedtech 2012. MEDIC@LPS is quite naturally a major partner of the event and will be promoting it abroad, in particular through its Boston office.
