innovation and investment for global well-being
Guanajuato’s Life Innovation & Technologies Cluster aims to promote the state as a leader globally and in Mexico in the life sciences field. The Cluster develops and expands alliances worldwide with a range of key stakeholders, including research and development organizations, advocacy groups, institutions of education and medical device manufacturers.
Our vision is to promote Guanajuato as a leader in life sciences products and services, working to improve healthcare outcomes locally and around the world.
The state of Guanajuato is the ideal location for Mexico’s newest medical device and technology innovation sector. Guanajuato offers the ideal mix of a talented youthful workforce, education and training institutions, and a convenient, centrally situated location with great infrastructure.
- A rich environment for engineering and skilled talent
- Proven manufacturing base
- Fantastic cultural and lifestyle amenities
- Established clusters in other industries, representing a vast supply chain
The cluster is organized into these six collaborative subject matter areas
Knowledge Transfer & Fostering of Innovation
We intend to give cluster members and partners access to all the resources and knowledge we have gained over the years, through three key areas:
Sharing regulatory facilitation best practices, by leveraging industry-related national and international certifications that our Cluster companies hold, such as ISO, CE, FDA and NOM. In addition, members with auditing bodies and consultants that help companies in their certification processes will be valuable member resources.
Leveraging linkages with Universities, Chambers, other Clusters, and Regulatory Laboratories to simplify the process of securing resources for development, evaluation of products and certification of materials.
Sharing logistical strategies among members, concerning routes that are used, carriers, Customs brokers and everything related to the import and export of raw materials and products, including our partners that offer these services.
This knowledge-sharing will make us stronger together.
The Linkage focus area of the GTO Life Innovation & Technologies Cluster includes strategic activities for the development of synergies with the objective of promoting the activities of the cluster.
We seek to facilitate communication and alliances between the different sectors of those who pertain to the cluster, helping the regional development of:
- Supply Chain
- Educational Institutions
- Research & Development Centers
- Other Clusters
- Associations & Chambers of Commerce
- Regulatory Organizations & International and National Certification Agencies
- Governmental Agencies
Foreign Direct Investment
The FDI focus area works with the members of the cluster to promote Guanajuato as a leading global location for life innovation and technology companies. This focus area also helps manufacturers determine if Mexico is a viable solution for their business needs.
Through an integrated outreach and thought leadership programs – including multichannel marketing activities, tradeshows & events, partnerships with key strategic associations and the State’s Economic Development Department – we highlight the benefits of Guanajuato for global manufacturers.
By working together with potential partners and suppliers of the industry, we seek to strengthen the minimum criteria required to implement an ensured quality system that guarantees sustainability through the continuous improvement of administrative, commercial, technical, productive and financial skills. Helping our industry suppliers deliver products and services on a more competitive level.
