Europe is a candidate gold mine

If, for example, the largest market for pharmaceutical products today is the United States, Europe spends the equivalent amount every year in R&D, and the number of new chemical or biological entities created per year is similar.

As a result, there are approximately 700 000 people employed today in the pharmaceutical industry in Europe, with one of the largest proportions of executives and university graduates, from the most sought-after programmes.

The Medical Technology industry spans 4 distinct markets: medical devices, in vitro diagnostics, imaging equipment, and e-health. Europe represents a third of the world market and employs roughly 600 000 professionals, 95% of which work in SMEs. The market is consistently growing (4% per annum), because of its role in putting a brake on rising healthcare costs.

Most importantly, Medtech (Medical Technology) is the number one industry in Europe for innovation patents filed,  which is proof to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, as well as to the ground-breaking competencies that can be found in the Old Continent.
