"The leading Dutch Life Sciences & Health hotspot in the greater Amsterdam area"

For over 30 years now, Leiden Bio Science Park has been and still is the outstanding number 1 Life Sciences & Health hotspot in The Netherlands and also one of the most important clusters in the EU.

The park is situated in the greater Amsterdam area and ideally located in the heart of the Dutch economic urban area. The popular Dutch coast, ESA-ESTEC Space Cluster and the international Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) are within reach and easy access.

With the upcoming relocation of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to the surrounding area (15 minutes away), now’s the time to seize the moment and settle in the fastest growing science park. Turnkey offices, dedicated laboratories and 300,000 square meters of green fields are at your disposal. Elaborate or relocate your business to the Leiden Bio Science Park!

Excellent proven startup and scale up climate

We value and deeply appreciate startups and scale ups. During the last decades, Leiden Bio Science Park has been the cradle of many successful pharmaceutical companies. Amongst them appealing names such as Centocor, Crucell, Galapagos, Mentor, Pharming, ProQR and Prosensa. During their entrepreneurial journey on the leading Dutch Life Sciences park in Leiden, several of these companies matured autonomously as stock market quoted companies. Others have been taken over by global players such as BioMarin, Eurofins and Johnson & Johnson. The startup climate in Leiden, especially in the life sciences, has always been, and still is excellent. With the forthcoming move (in 2019) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to the direct surrounding of the Leiden Bio Science Park (at 15 minutes distance) the startup climate becomes even more attractive. We favour startups, and startups favour us. We invite you to join our legion of startups and scale up in our lively area!

Find the perfect startup spot

Ideal playground for global R&D divisions

With a local government that really listens to what companies need and a park management assuring favourable entrepreneurial conditions, it's no coincidence that global players such as Astellas, Janssen Biologics, Janssen Vaccines and HAL Allergy, have chosen Leiden as their playground for research and development. The presence of Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center in the science park are a righteous guarantee for a highly dynamical campus with a continuous flow of new talents on the block, freshly skilled for the challenges of today and tomorrow. For more than 30 years now, the park specializes in R&D, and therefor offers a wide range of facilities, laboratories and supportive institutions. The establishment (2019) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in the direct surroundings completes the ideal picture for R&D driven companies and divisions to (re)locate to the Leiden Bio Science Park. A worthy consideration!
