The strategic wager on the biosciences in the Basque Country with the creation of the BioBasque Strategy and the creation of the Órgano de Coordinación Biosanitaria (Agency for Biomedical Coordination) has actively promoted biotechnological activity in the region.

Thus, Gipuzkoa has a particularly promising biotechnological potential: the robust institutional ecosystem of R & D, for its strong assistance base, for international excellence of various groups and research centers, for the existence of a consolidated health system, by the growing fabric of biotechnology companies; as well as the existence of various R & D infrastructure (Science and Technology Park, Technology Centres, Cooperative Research Centres, Institute of Biomedical research …) and powerful industry groups who are potential users of biotechnology.

Strengthening and growth of this sector will require specific technical and human support. To this end, the specialized incubator was created in 2015 as part of BIC Gipuzkoa, for the Biotechnology, Bioengineering and Health sectors, with a proposal to add value through a system and network of expert work, geared as much toward preincubation phases as toward incubation and postincubation.
