Vision and mission

Biovalley Group pursues its mission by providing support for the development of innovative SMEs working in the BioHighTech health sector, which the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region has identified as one of the five intelligent specialization strategies.

Biovalley Group.creates added value by participating as minority shareholders in the risk capital of the companies it identifies, and by creating collaborative networks between innovative companies to tackle synergistically the internationalization of the sector, the “internet of things”, and participation in R&D calls for projects under the PORFESR and Interreg European funds.

In keeping with these principles, Biovalley Group has launched a wide-ranging industrial collaboration effort by promoting the BioHighTech-Net network, of which it is the leader.
