Growth and development services for Life Sciences

In the Life Science sector, internationalisation is often a requirement for success, because the domestic market alone is too small. That’s why the emphasis of our services lies strongly in increasing the potential for internationalisation and increasing the international marketing of Turku-based expertise.

We support the commercialisation of new innovations, implement cost-efficient fair and partnering trips for participants and provide international high-quality mentors.

Life Science accelerator

The Life Science Accelerator programme speeds up the commercialisation of university-based research projects, and the growth and internationalisation of early-stage enterprises. The target area is especially drug development and diagnostics, and the lines of business and solutions closely linked thereto.

NOME mentoring

Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) is a Nordic mentoring programme. The services of high-quality mentors are also available to Finnish Life Science companies. The mentors of NOME work on a voluntary basis and help Nordic start-up companies in targeting at growth and international success. Turku Science Park Ltd co-ordinates the NOME programme in Finland.

Health Campus Turku
