Part of Leiden Bio Science Park

ranked 5th in Europe 

The Leiden Bio Science Park, renowned as the largest, fastest growing, and yet most mature life sciences cluster in the Netherlands, stands as a beacon of innovation and collaboration, ranked 5th in Europe and  8th worldwide. Its dynamic growth is driven by the Netherlands' strategic emphasis on biosciences as a key sector, further accelerated by the presence of the European Medicines Agency (EMA)* in Amsterdam.

With its vibrant community of over 150 biomedical life science companies, the park converges with world-renowned research institutes, Leiden University, and the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). Together they spearhead the development of innovative drugs, vaccines, diagnostics, and platform technologies.

The collaborative community not only accelerates the growth of the life sciences and health sector in the Netherlands but also cements the park's status as a cornerstone of global scientific advancements. Remarkably, Leiden Bio Science Park boasts the highest employment rate of all Science Parks in the Netherlands, showcasing its pivotal role in the economy and its contribution to the sector's development. Employment rates at the park are expected to grow to 30,000 by 2027, solidifying its position as a key driver of job creation and economic growth.

Nexus is located on Leiden Bio Science Park West, which is the newest part of the Leiden Bio Science Park. This part is changing swift from young and new to mature with many new state-of-the-art biotechnology facilities being built, such as Galapagos and Bristol Myers Squibb. Major companies like IFF (former known as Dupont IB*) as well as BioPartner 5 and Avery Dennison are already established. The Hilton Hotel, CORPUS museum, a central car park and the planned residential area at the waterfront with their facilities such as restaurants and sport completes this part of the Science Park.
