For a data-backed opinion on Switzerland and Europe as a whole, we recommend the KPMG report “Site Selection for Life Sciences Companies in Europe”. It is loaded with stats about innovation scores, product pipelines, financing and more. For us it came as no surprise to find that Switzerland ranks highly among the leading countries in most indicators, despite its small population size.
The second part of this report in particular elaborates on the importance of the right location in Life Sciences. The statistics provided may help you in your decision making process and the report contains information on where to find a decent cluster of peers, the power of financing, innovation potential and attractiveness to a highly skilled workforce. Switzerland ranks well on all of these factors, but why not see for yourself?
