Our Mission

Our Mission

Renowned research institutions at Ruhr University Bochum, the Health Campus in Bochum, and a dense corporate network form the foundation of the Health Campus Bochum agency. It is an important component of Bochum's economic development and is integrated into the Technology & Innovation area.

The agency acts as an incubator for innovative projects, attracts new companies to the location, supports spin-offs, and generates additional added value in the future-oriented healthcare market together with local companies. The expertise of an advisory board from the fields of business, science, and care complements its own expertise and ensures a holistic approach. In addition, the agency has convened an initiative that works in depth on operationalising the ideas.
