Life sciences and biotech
Over the last 10 years Lugano and Ticino have seen significant development in the healthcare research area. This sector is supported by the various health facilities, hospitals and clinics, both public and private, which have played an important role as incubators in research and applications in various cutting-edge health sectors.
This is a phenomenon which has made it possible to focus attention on Lugano, opening up a host of opportunities for its outstanding healthcare facilities in the area of training and development for doctors. It has also paved the way for these facilities to become part of an international network of exchange and research centres in the life sciences and biotechnology sectors.
