Nextmed - Instrumental for tomorrow's healthcare

Ever since it opened in 2012, nextmed has been an international benchmark for advances in healthcare and in the development of medical expertise for serving citizens.

A wide-ranging programme in the heart of Strasbourg

Located within the campus of Strasbourg's civil hospital, nextmed brings together a full spectrum of medical, scientific and entrepreneurial expertise for building the healthcare of the future and innovation-led solutions for managing patients. Local and international partnerships are the driving force behind nextmed's aim of producing 1500 new jobs in the healthcare sector.

The challenge : using innovation to benefit patients

Ongoing enhancement of the patient pathway, preventive and medical care, daily monitoring and encouragement of digital healthcare solutions provide the main focus of the campus's ambitions. An ageing population means that chronic illnesses and associated pathologies, such as diabetes, need to be tackled without delay, while researching the medical solutions for tomorrow and working on how our region will be able to adapt to these developments.

Nextmed : from the original idea to patient application

One of nextmed's prime focuses is to bring companies together within an environment which will radically shorten the time between the emergence of an innovative idea and its application to patient healthcare.

The territory possesses the expertise, reactivity and knowledge of the medical and business environment to assess each individual project to pinpoint the specific areas where assistance needs to be provided. Nextmed acts as a key facilitator, helping businesses to:

  • Come up with the right opportunity,
  • Enjoy collaborative innovation,
  • Prosper within an environment of excellence.
