OpenZone is a place where Research is turned into Business, a campus dedicated to Health on the doorstep of Milano, created by Zambon to consolidate its way of thinking and experiencing research in Life Sciences.
Funded entirely by private capital, OpenZone it’s founded on an approach geared towards open innovation, conceived to build bridges between different competencies, languages, and worlds. Thanks to its recent expansion that has included a 69 million euros investment plan, the two new towers and a wholly new and environment-friendly power plant, the campus now covers an area of 37,000 sqm, providing space for up to 1,200 people, reaching 20,000 sqm of office spaces and 17,000 sqm of laboratories (1,600 of which Good Manufacturing Practices).
OpenZone is home to 34 organizations, including some of the world’s foremost biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and advanced gene therapy companies, such as DiaSorin, AGC Biologics, EryDel and Axxam.
OpenZone works closely with all the stakeholders in the Healthcare sector, to ensure that Milano and Lombardy are increasingly recognized internationally as territories of excellence for Life Sciences.
