BIOSPAIN is the largest biotech event organized by a national bioindustry association in Europe and one of the largest in the world by the number of one-to-one meetings and companies participating. 34% of our delegates came from outside of Spain.

Next year, BIOSPAIN goes back to Barcelona, the main biotech cluster in Spain and one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

The event will take place in Pavilion 1 – Fira de Barcelona – Montjuïc. It stands in a superb location in the city center, easily accessible from the airport and well-connected to the public transport network. It is located in Montjuïc Park, an area of cultural and historical interest thanks to its museums and theatres and it also features some of the main tourist attractions in Barcelona.

Why Spain?

3,585 companies carried out biotechnology activities in 2019, of which 790 are biotech firms.

47% of biotech firms working exclusively in biotechnology do so in human health, followed those focused on food applications, at 43%.

In terms of geographic breakdown, Catalonia, Madrid, Andalusia and the Basque Country are home to the most companies. Companies in Catalonia make up 54% of the total.

The joint activity of biotech companies generated over €12 billion in income, which is 0.8% of the Spanish GDP.

The science produced by the Spanish biotechnology sector is excellent and its innovation is patented internationally.

Regarding production of scientific knowledge, Spanish biotechnology makes up 3.2% of global production and is cited 30% more than the global average in this area. Spain rose one position on the ranking by documents in biotechnology, to 8th in the world. Spanish biotechnology produces science of excellence, with 26% of papers among the top 10% most cited in the world.

The sector is working together to tackle the pandemic and maintains its interest in international markets.

Biotech firms forged 59% more alliances and 40% of them were with organisations from the public sector. This increase is due to the sector pulling together to fight Covid-19, seeking new products to diagnose and predict it, working to create new treatments and vaccines, and collaborating to manufacture them. AseBio members boosted their international presence 19% in 2020, with 35 member companies present in 48 countries.


The BioRegion of Catalonia, the Catalan healthcare and life sciences sector, has more than 1,300 companies and 91 research organizations. This sector generates €37.689 million each year, makes up 8.7% of the gross domestic product (GDP) and 8% of all employment in Catalonia, with more than 244,000 workers. In terms of GDP and population, Catalonia is comparable to EU countries like Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Austria and Ireland, and the BioRegion’s even surpasses these countries in some of the indicators of research success. Over the past three years, the number of foreign investors in the BioRegion of Catalonia has almost doubled, Financial Times has selected Catalonia as the best Southern European region for investment in 2020-2021.
