Polyganics receives a € 3,8 million subsidy for a new building on Zernike Campus Groningen. The medical technology company has outgrown their start-up status, being so successful that an expansion is needed to keep innovating and growing. The provincial grant stems from the Regional Investment Grant Groningen (RIG). Polyganics currently employs 48 people. The expansion yields 41 extra jobs and takes an investment of nearly €23 million. A great impetus for the entrepreneurial climate and research facilities on Campus Groningen!
Polyganics is a medical technology company bringing to market unique bioresorbable devices to facilitate tissue repair and regeneration after surgery. Their original polymers were developed at the University of Groningen and Polyganics spun out from this University in 1999. In the new building there will be research labs, production rooms and offices. The construction work is planned to start end of 2019, and finish in 2021.
