Shift Medical is based in
university city Heidelberg
Heidelberg was mentioned for the first time in 1196 and is well known for Germany’s oldest university, the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, founded in 1386. The city is also home for the world famous Heidelberg University Clinic, the German Cancer Research Centre, the National Center for Tumor Diseases, four Max Planck Institutes and the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (funded by 40 nations).
As one of the leading biotechnology hubs in Europe, Heidelberg is an extremely attractive location for businesses and technology providers. Due to the close cooperation with many of the companies, institutions, the university, the university clinic, the city of Heidelberg and the state of Baden Württemberg, we have an ideal biotope for the further development of our European Shift Medical Network.
