Prof. Dr. Peter Kolominsky-Rabas, Head of the Interdisciplinary Center for Public Health of the FAU: The special thing at Medical Valley is that we are able to not only think up medical products imaginatively but also make them a reality. Many interdisciplinary groups work on this in the Medical Valley cluster of excellence. Medical Valley is thus a unique platform that helps both globally operating companies and SMEs to bring better products onto the market more quickly.
Prof.  Dr.  Kathrin  Möslein, Chair of Business Informatics, esp. Innovation and Value Creation of the FAU: In the Medical Valley, open innovation appears as a living exchange of ideas, concepts and technologies in everyday life.

Dr. Robert Schmidt, Head of Innovation | Environment, Nuremberg Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Chairman of Medical Valley Center GmbH: Through the Medical Valley, the European Metropolitan Region of Nuremberg has become a leading region in Europe in the field of medical technology. A key success factor is the tight-knit network between science and business. This is reflected in the successful transfer of research results into innovative products and in the high patent density. One third of all German patents in the field of 'medicine and diagnostics' come from our region.
