At the heart of the research and development ecosystem there is Fondation Campus Biotech Geneva (FCBG), a non-profit organization created on 5 December 2013 by EPFL, Unige, HUG and the Canton of Geneva. Its main mission is to manage the academic, clinical and entrepreneurial entities of Campus Biotech, host and support research groups, provide funding and operate the common support platforms.
The originality of Campus Biotech is that its backbone is made up of scientific and technical platforms that support the research and development effort of the entire ecosystem. These platforms are tools made available to the community to enable it to excel in its work. They are accessible to both Campus Biotech residents and to the wider research community, and promote interaction within the research groups and between the complementary worlds of research, industry and start-ups.
