Access to

Knowledge alters perspectives and people’s lives, when it comes to health. With the latest know-how on biotechnology, full-cycle drug development, clinical trials and healthy living, people around the world can benefit from the LBSP’ expertise.

On the LBSP, the different learning communities are encouraged to join forces and learn from each other on these themes and subjects as well as on related ones like AI and biodiversity. The knowledge institutions on-site, such as LUMC, Leiden University, Hogeschool Leiden and TNO, as well as many of the companies, employ a great number of researchers, education professionals, who are eager to share their expertise. Teaming up with these professionals will give you the knowledge to further progress your business.

We believe knowledge should be accessible to everyone in the community.

As we uphold a strong international reputation in collaborative research, the success of cooperation between researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs proves itself. Exploring novel opportunities together and ensuring the availability of information resources, is key.


We sustain collaborative contacts with many clusters and organisations around the globe and work in highly international teams. The themes we focus on range from fundamental biotechnological innovations to a healthy lifestyle (disease prevention). We share educational tools, information and expertise through a range of projects and activities, such as meetings, webinars and podcasts .

We’re always looking for professionals wanting to share their knowledge, lead workshops or host podcasts and meetups. Check our Projects page for more information on the latest Knowledge projects and themes.
