Council of European Bioregions: our Cluster Manager Sauro Vicini elected member of the Board

The Council of European BioRegions (CEBR) celebrated its Annual Meeting 2023 on May 16th and 17th with a members-only event taking place in Stuttgart. The event was organized and hosted by BioRegio STERN, a member of CEBR. Clust-ER Health, which became a member in 2022, participated alongside the other 4 regional clusters.

This year, the event was also particularly important due to the election of the ne Executive Board, where all the members of the CEBR were able to vote for the candidates, including the manager of the Clust-ER Health Sauro Vicini.

“CEBR is in a great moment of expansion and growth, and, with the appointment of the new executive board, we are sure that we will continue to grow and generate an impact in the European life sciences and healthcare ecosystems.”

“In recent years, CEBR has acquired a very relevant position in its ability to influence the research and innovation policies of the European Commission in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. Italy, which represents the main drug-producing country in Europe, participates in the European Council of BioRegions with 5 regional clusters. It is a pleasure for me, which comes with a great responsibility, to represent the ecosystem of health innovation in Emilia-Romagna and to act as a connection point with the other Italian regions.”
