Abstract

Pivot Park: hotspot for pharmaceutical innovation
Pivot Park is an inspiring campus for (open) innovation in the life sciences with a focus on pharmaceutical Research, Development and Production. It is the perfect place for start-ups and existing companies to accelerate, grow and succeed.
Pivot Park was launched in February 2012 as an initiative of pharmaceutical company MSD in close collaboration with five public partners after closure of the MSD Oss R&D group.
‘Pivot’ means axis or central point, and that’s exactly the role that Pivot Park wants to fulfil on a daily basis for dynamic life sciences companies. How? By offering state-of-the-art core facilities and infrastructure, the flexibility to deliver customised work to ambitious entrepreneurs in the life sciences sector and an inspiring community. Several companies at Pivot Park were successful, starting of as a small company and scaled-up to over 25 and some of them over 50 employees, and delivering new treatment options to patients.
How can we, especially on a national level, facilitate entrepreneurs/researchers with great ideas in the life sciences in close collaboration with public and private stakeholders to ensure that these innovations can turn in to solutions which contribute to a healthier society.
