We are pleased to welcome the Eurasanté Hauts-de-France Health Ecosystem. Read the interesting interview with Elodie Schutz, European Project Manager at Eurasanté.
For more than 20 years, Eurasanté has been supporting the Northern France region ecosystems of researchers, project leaders and companies from the health and nutrition sector in their research, creation, and activity development projects.
The northern France health and nutrition sector is rich with 1,100 companies employing 32,000 people in the biotech / pharma, medtech, specialized services and e-health sectors. The sector includes large groups that are world leaders, as well as a substantial network of SMEs, who collaborate with a large network of research, academic and healthcare institutions. The health sector is a key element of the regional economy, with €12,5 billion turnover. The companies in this sector interact with a rich network of research institutions among the most fertile in France with 80 laboratories, 4,000 public and private researchers, focused on major public health themes: cancer, cardio-metabolic diseases, neurodegenerative pathologies, chronic bowel disease (MICI).
As an ecosystem manager, our missions are to:
We are supporting an innovative ecosystem and we always need to meet and connect with stakeholders (industries, research, care, investment, training, …) from Europe and beyond to further develop our ecosystem and attract new members. Our ecosystem is very active at the European level supported by Eurasanté’s European Project Team dedicated to project engineering and monitoring, which I am part of, and experience of +15 years of managing EU projects. We are either looking for organisations willing to partner with us to apply to EU calls for project or to partner with our ecosystem members.
