Life sciences at the heart of health valley

The canton of Vaud is home to a significant high-quality infrastructure, as well as knowledge and expertise in the field of life sciences. Indeed, the region is often referred to as “Health Valley.” The canton brings together a large number of research centres and companies active in life sciences and health which are recognized worldwide.

The Vaud region brings together extremely advanced skills in a large number of innovative sectors. Public institutions of international renown are energizing the health sector, working hand-in-hand with the private sector.

Life in Lausanne, Switzerland

Lausanne is ranked as world number 1 best small city to live in, with high ratings in safety, healthcare and education, plus a free environment for business and innovation.

“Lausanne has EPFL, IMD and the École Hôtelière – along with more intangible factors, such as whether you can get a good coffee at 6am or be on a dance floor at 2am. The city is hugely international: more than 40 per cent of its population is foreign. You’ll hear French, German and Italian spoken, plus English in accents from Australian to Canadian.”
