From Erlangen into the world and people as focus of attention: The Medical Valley European Metropolitan Region Nuremberg develops and unites the unique scientific and economic competence in healthcare in an internationally leading MedTech cluster.

Dr. Florian Janik

Mayor of the city of Erlangen

Medical Valley has developed into an important driver of innovation in medical technology 'made in Germany'. In the midst of an exceptionally dynamic scientific and industrial region, professional structures have been established to turn creative ideas into useful products. The key driver of this success is the tangible willingness of all players to work together in the interests of better healthcare for people. Numerous new companies have been founded in the region, which have been able to successfully establish themselves on the market either alone or in partnership with one of the established companies. In my view, this is an encouraging example of 'German ingenuity at its best'.

Prof. Dr. med. Jörg Debatin

The Medical Valley is an outstanding and highly professional ecosystem that supported us from day 1 of our venture. One thing that seems to me particularly worth emphasizing is the balancing act that Medical Valley performs very successfully: providing active support to young startups and established world market leaders alike.
