FahrigProf. Dr. Rudolf Fahrig »Saxony, as a location of industry and commerce, offers two major advantages for establishing biotech companies there: a vivid scientific background and the support by the Dresden local government and by the State of Saxony. Another decisive advantage of Saxony and, in particular, Dresden is the professional training of future founders of biotech companies in the recently established competence centers in the universities as well as in the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics.«
