The Biocampus Cologne
Area of the future
Companies need spatial perspectives to grow. Founders need a location, where the industry's knowledge is concentrated. Become a part of the industry of the future, biotechnology and life sciences, on the BioCampus Cologne, a top class location in the heart of Europe. The BioCampus Cologne is developing into a motor of innovation and one of the largest biotechnology parks in Germany. At the centre of the idea are numerous up-and-coming companies from the life science sector like amaxa AG / Lonza Cologne AG, DIREVO Industrial Biotechnology GmbH, Solvent Innovation GmbH / Merck KGaA, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Products GmbH or A. Nattermann & Cie. GmbH / sanofi aventis who have settled here since the opening in 2002.
In knowledge-based industries, information is vital to the creation of value. The successful neighbours on the Campus have this capital. That's why the name of the BioCampus...
BioCampus Cologne is ready for the success of its tenants. In ready-to-use rooms, surrounded by extensive open spaces in the city of Cologne, tenants can realise their visions. In an area of more than 254,000 sq.m, the pre-financed infrastructure and individual settlement concepts offer new perspectives for the growth sector of biotechnology.
Over short distances, the Campus presently joins more than 23,000 sq.m. of office space and conference rooms with modern S1 and S2 laboratories. In the near future tenants will have access to more than 100,000 sq.m. of office and laboratory space and guests will enjoy a hotel facility with a restaurant and meeting rooms. The newly-built car park will offer 670 parking spaces available for employees and visitors. And the cluster is growing with the visions of the tenants — BioCampus Cologne will be continuously extended.
Alongside laboratories, offices and production rooms, numerous shared facilities are available, including a Campus restaurant. Representative conference rooms offer everything needed for dialogue between the players on the Campus as well as a roof terrace with a Japanese garden and a breathtaking view over Cologne. To help develop the exchange of ideas on questions of the future and to provide important stimulus, BioCampus Cologne organises meetings of the biotech business with the worlds of science, industry, politics and the media. These activities unfold a corporate culture and are therefore developing into the core of an international centre of excellence.
Additional advantages are the top location and perfect connections. Whether by car, rail or plane — the BioCampus Cologne is easily and quickly reachable in every way. The most important motorways in Western Europe meet at Cologne. On the A1 the exit Cologne-Bocklemünd is the direct motorway link to the BioCampus Cologne. The principle of short routes also applies to the air. The airports of Cologne-Bonn and Düsseldorf are each reachable in around only 30 minutes and also Frankfurt Airport is reachable in less than an hour.
BioCampus Cologne has developed into a life science location with a worldwide reputation. Use the fusion of industry, science and globality for your company and your ideas and participate as part of a synergic whole. We would be pleased to welcome you to Cologne.
