Why Kent is a member

In order to build on the legacy of the EU-funded Interreg Boost4Health project activity and network which supported Kent-based Health & Life Science businesses with internationalisation and connected them to clusters, contacts and businesses in North West Europe, Kent remains a member of the Council of European BioRegions (CEBR).

Who CEBR connects Kent to (which clusters)

The CEBR consists of around 40 Life Science clusters and other organisations working with Health & Life Science companies across Europe. Through the CEBR, Kent SMEs have access to collaboration opportunities, information about different Life Science cluster activities and the potential to link up with businesses, research organisations and cluster leads across Europe.
