The life sciences and healthcare industry is growing across Central and Eastern Europe. Indeed, the region is poised to become a major centre of healthcare research and manufacturing in the coming years. Many universities conduct cutting-edge life sciences research and there has been a significant increase in companies manufacturing drugs and other healthcare materials in the region. This creates significant opportunities for companies and investors in the region and beyond.
