14/12/2020

The creation of the Campus Biotech Digital is a unique and visionary initiative in the domain of bio production training & capability development. It has been designed with the vision to group together biotechnology stakeholders around an innovative training offer, powered by state-of-the-art digital solutions. This is a major step for Servier in our Biologics ramp-up journey.

This ambitious initiative is driven by an industrial consortium (BioMerieux, Novasep, Sanofi et Servier) and gathers together the whole French Biotech ecosystem.

The Campus Biotech Digital is financed by a Public Private Partnership for a total of more than 30M€ over 4 years and it is located in Sanofi site in Vitry-sur-Seine.

The initiative is part of the CSF-ITS (Comité Stratégique de Filière des Industries et Technologies de Santé), signed by French Prime Minister with key players of the French Healthcare Industry. The goal of this strategic committee is to develop and industrialize Biologic therapies, to make these innovations accessible to patients whilst increasing the competitiveness of the French & European players.

This campus represents the first of kind Biotech & Digital Training Center in the world for pharmaceutical manufacturing. It will integrate behavioral and technical training with realistic simulations (similar to flight simulators to train pilots), covering all steps of the value chain, accurately mirroring real-life scenarios and task to provide comprehensive preparation to learners.
