Preface By building on more than a century of experience in science and medical research, Vienna has advanced to become one of the leading life science hubs in Europe in the past 20 years. This success is based on outstanding research performed by the scientists at the city’s universities and research institutions, on the entrepreneurial spirit and innovations developed by dynamic life science start-ups and established companies as well as on the financial and strategic investments made by the City of Vienna and the federal government. Over the last 10 years, the Austrian national funding bank, austria wirtschaftsservice (aws), has awarded roughly 430 million euros in grants, loans and guarantees to life science companies. Since 1998, the ZIT – The Technology Agency of the City of Vienna, the Vienna Science and Technology Fund and the Vienna Business Agency have also funded life science projects to the tune of 117 million euros. The custom-tailored funding and service instruments of these and other funding agencies such as FFG and INiTS, leveraged a multitude of private in-

vestments and cooperation with large international enterprises. Moreover, a perfect interaction between universities, research institutes, and industry resulted in a knowledge and technology transfer that has been crucial for successful company developments. Since 2002, Life Science Austria Vienna (LISAvienna) has been successfully operating as a life science cluster organization providing information and advice for potential start-ups and new arrivals, as well as for life science businesses in general. The five core activities of LISAvienna include consulting, marketing, qualification, networking, and the compilation of life science related strategic studies. With this report LISAvienna aims to depict Vienna as a leading European research and business location in the field of the life sciences. The report provides the latest facts and figures which underscore the significance of the life sciences in Vienna. And is the first statistical survey according to the internationally accepted OECD and GMDN standards in Austria. In 2010, the Life Science Cluster Vienna

counted more than 400 companies of which 99 were biotech and medtech companies that were producing or developing products and processes in these fields. These core enterprises employed more than 9,000 people and generated 1.7 billion euros in sales in 2010. Apart from these business activities, basic research is performed by 22 research institutions, which employ over 14,000 people. The survey is complemented by success stories of outstanding companies and provides an insight into the first-rate academic landscape in Vienna.

These employ over 9,000 staff. The active and dedicated biotechnology and medical technology companies generated revenue to the tune of 1.7 billion euros in the year 2010. As expected, the research & development (R&D) to sales ratio in dedicated biotech companies of 151% is substantially higher than the R&D to sales ratio of dedicated medtech companies which is 26%. The difference is due to the intensive

7

research and the long development times that are necessary for biotechnological products. Furthermore, the biotech companies are very young compared to the medtech companies. The medtech companies, with an average age of 17.9 years, are more than twice as old as the average biotech company, which is 7.1 years. Vienna’s share in the Austrian life sciences is remarkable: 58% of all Austrian biotech-

nology companies are located in Vienna. They account for 29% of the total revenue and employ 55% of all staff working in the Austrian biotech industry. Also, in the area of medical technology many companies are located in Vienna: 37% of all Austrian firms are in the capital city. They generate 52% of the total revenue with 27% of the employees working in the medical technology branch in Austria.

Academia The basis for successful in-house company research often originates in outstanding academic research. In life science research and education, Vienna ranks top in Austria: Twenty-two research institutions are located in Vienna. Five universities, two applied universities, ten non-profit research institutes and five other organizations perform noteworthy research and teaching activities in the life sciences. With more than 35,000 students in the life sciences alone, Vienna educates more young scientists than any other city in Austria. Altogether, the 22 research institutions employ over 14,000 people. Numerous publications (5,182 in 2010) in international journals are evidence of the excellent research activities.

growth markets of the neighboring countries in Eastern Europe, but also the attractive tax system with a low corporate tax of 25% and the op­tion of group taxation. Group taxation reductions allow international groups and companies with Austrian subsidiaries to transfer profits and losses between group subsidiaries and to reduce the overall corporate tax liability to a minimum. In addition to low rates of tax, there are generous deductions and exemptions for investments in research and education. R&D allowances of up to 25% (in special cases up to 35%) are available on research and development expenditures. The Austrian tax system grants a tax premium for research amounting to 10%. For the education and training of employees employers can claim a tax allowance of 20%. Dynamic Start-ups and Global Players The growing importance of Vienna as a life science cluster is reflected in the numerous start-ups, the emergence of new research centers and the establishment of subsidiaries by leading global life science companies. Numerous international corporations have a notable presence in Vienna. In addition to pursuing their sales activities in Central and Eastern Europe from their Vienna base, some of these subsidiaries also operate research and production facilities here.

In 1997, Austria became the Baxter Group‘s biggest location outside America. Around 3,800 people are currently employed in production, research (biosciences) and marketing organizations in Vienna and the surrounding area. Their activities include the development and production of blood plasma

compounds, recombinant coagulation factors, fibrin sealants and vaccines such as the FSME vaccine, which protects against tick-borne encephalitis. In 2008, Baxter also founded Baxter Innovation GmbH, in which all Austrian and international R&D is clustered.

The Boehringer Ingelheim Regional Center Vienna (RCV) is responsible for the pharmaceutical business in more than 30 Central and Eastern European countries and manages the entire clinical research of this region. The company is also the dedicated oncology research center of the international group as well as an important site for biopharmaceutical development and production. With more than 1,100 employees and research expenses of 143 million euros in 2010, the Boehringer Ingelheim RCV ranks among the top companies and employers of the Austrian life science sector.

The Austrian subsidy of Eli Lilly was founded in June 1976. Altogether almost 190 employees work in the different branches in Vienna. Since 1997, Vienna has been the company’s headquarters for CEE (Central and Eastern Europe), for parts of the management of the EMS region (European Mid Size) and AMERASIA (Africa, Middle East, Russia and Asia), as well as the Regional Medical Center responsible for research activities. The site in Vienna is a central hub and a platform for international research activities.

The Austrian subsidiary of the German Otto Bock Group is a competence center for mechatronics. The leg prosthesis system C-Leg® controlled by a microprocessor and the myoelectric arm prosthesis DynamicArm®, which helps the patient regain elbow function, were both fully developed in Vienna. These global players are supplemented by a fast growing number of biotech and medical technology start-ups and a superior research infrastructure.

The City of Vienna strongly promotes life sciences with financial incentives and the fostering of networks. These networks as well as state-of-the-art technology hubs facilitate interaction between global players, start-ups, research institutions and educational facilities with the aim of ensuring the fast and effective transfer of technologies between the scientific and the business communities. Up to 2018, the City of Vienna together with the Republic of Austria will be investing 52 million euros into the Campus Vienna Biocenter (CVBC) a cutting-edge shared core facility. Over a 10-year period the city will invest another 10 million euros in the Vienna Institute of BioTechnology Equipment GmbH located at LifeScience Vienna Muthgasse in the 19th district. In addition to the state-of-the-art infrastructure, customized funding for startups and established companies is offered by different agencies. Tailored Funding and Services Austria and in particular Vienna offer a broad range of financial sup-

port programs from national and city agencies. On behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth, austria wirtschaftservice (aws), the Austrian funding bank aims to stimulate the economy through financial support and know-how transfer. aws provides financial support to high-technology start-ups with its programs “LISA PreSeed” and “LISA Seedfinancing”. The PreSeed program provides funding for proof of principle experiments or the development of prototypes before a high-tech business is founded. The maximum amount of this nonrefundable grant is 200,000 euros. Starting up an innovative and internationally competitive high-tech company requires considerable know-how, a lot of courage and sufficient capital. With “LISA Seedfinancing” aws funds the start-up phase of young high-tech companies with up to EUR 1 million, combined with customized advice and support. These funding programs are embedded in a comprehensive life science program, ranging from the life science business plan competition “Best of Biotech” to

The Life Sciences in Vienna: Spotlight on Research and Teaching A brochure on the life sciences in Vienna would be incomplete without considering research activities which go beyond the business side. In fact, commercial activities in the life sciences are often based on outstanding academic research. LISAvienna asked 22 institutions active in the life sciences to participate in a survey* to gather up-to-date statistics on life science research activities in Vienna. Because commercial activities in biotech and medtech are linked to many different disciplines such as agriculture, biology, chemistry, engineering, material sciences, medicine, pharmaceutics and veterinary medicine, a very broad and extended life science definition has been applied for the set-up of the sample. The bandwidth of the institutes’ landscape is particularly large. It includes classical academic education at the University of Vienna as well as training in specialist disciplines in basic and applied research facilities. This extensive scientific range traditionally attracts a large number of national and international private companies that support research with large amounts of external funding or even completely self-financed institutions. Numerous innovations owe their existence to this proximity between research and industry. Short profiles of the 22 organizations that contrib-

uted their data are included in this report (see p. 18). Key Figures at a Glance Vienna is home to seven universities, ten non-profit research institutes and five other organizations performing noteworthy research and teaching activities in the life sciences. By the end of 2010, these institutions employed roughly 14,100 people in the life sciences (n = 21), 52 % of them were women (n = 20). With more than 35,000 students in the life sciences alone, Vienna educates more young scientists than any other city in Austria. 5,182 life science papers were published in peer-reviewed journals by researchers based in the organizations included in the sample (n = 20). Furthermore, 45 (n = 18) life science patents were filed last year. In 2010, the total life science budget of the organizations amounted to 699 million euros (n = 16), of this amount 194 million euros (n = 19) came from thirdparty funding. Long Traditions and Cutting-edge Research Vienna owes its success as one of the most important life science centers in Europe today to its long tradition

in scientific and medical research. Names such as Semmelweis, Billroth and Landsteiner have all taken their place in the annals of the city’s history. The University of Vienna, founded in 1365, is Austria‘s largest university. The Medical University of Vienna was originally founded in 1365 as a Medical Faculty of the University of Vienna. Since 2004 the Med­ Uni Vienna is an autonomous university. The University of Veterinary Medicine was founded in 1765 by Empress Maria Theresa as the first veterinary medicine educational establishment in the German-speaking world. In 1815, the Vienna University of Technology was established and in 1872 the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences was founded. Since the 1990s the institutional landscape has diversified immensely. Nowadays cutting-edge research is not only performed in well-established universities but also in research institutions such as the Max F. Perutz Laboratories, the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) or institutes operated by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) like the Center of Molecular Medicine (CeMM), the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular * Detailed information on the methodology can be found at www.LISAvienna.at

Plant Biology (GMI) and the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA). New Types of Collaborations New forms of institutions have emerged to address research questions that concern tangible societal and industrial problems and to allow for new types of collaboration with commercial and societal partners. These include institutes and labs supported by the Christian Doppler Research Association (CDG), the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) and the Karl Landsteiner Association. Furthermore, technology-focused competence centers like the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (ACIB) and the Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization Research (VRVis) have been set up and complement existing institutions like the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) and the Austrian Research Institute for Chemistry and Technology (OFI). Talent is the Key to Success Perfect organizational structures and a top infrastructure are without a doubt crucial for the delivery of excellent research results. However, the people working in these structures are the key to success. Their talent and motiva-

17

tion make the difference. At the end of 2010, 1,186 highly educated and motivated people worked in Vienna for the non-profit research institutions which were included in LISAvienna's survey. Women accounted for half this number. These employees are active in a wide variety of professions from medical doctors, clinical researchers, lab researchers, computer specialists and engineers to project managers, financial experts, administrative and public relations experts. Today, the life sciences also attract a large number of students: At Vienna‘s universities 35,288 students are registered in these courses, of these 33,184 at universities and 2,104 at applied universities.

of course, also has other dimensions like education of the next generation of researchers but also, for example, the generation of patents for promising new inventions. In 2010, the academic and non-profit institutions in the sample filed a total of 45 patent applications. Clearly, this output requires significant and ongoing public funding – especially as research in the life sciences can be very time-consuming and costly. The 16 institutions that provided LISAvienna with their financial data spent roughly EUR 699 million on the life sciences in 2010. Furthermore, 19 institutions received EUR 194 million for research projects in the life sciences last year.

Top Research Hot Spots in Vienna

Despite the controversial discussions on peer-review processes, they are still the standard of quality assurance in the academic world. Only publications that have been reviewed by experienced colleagues are published in high impact journals with an international readership. Researchers at the institutions that participated in LISAvienna's survey published 5,182 life sciences papers in peer-reviewed journals in 2010 – including Cell, Nature or New England Journal of Medicine and Science. Scientific output,

In recent years, five science and technology centers have emerged at various locations across Vienna where research institutions, hospitals and businesses co-locate. Dynamic startups and outstanding academic institutes are concentrated at the Campus Vienna Biocenter, around the Vienna General Hospital which is one of Europe's largest hospitals, at LifeScience Vienna Muthgasse, on the 15-hectare campus of the University of Veterinary Medicine as well as at the Vienna University of Technology.

This extensive scientific range traditionally attracts a large number of national and international private companies that support research with large amounts of external funding or even completely self-financed institutions. Numerous innovations owe their existence to this proximity between research and industry. The list below contains short portraits and additional information on the life science institutes located in Vienna in alphabetical order.

The dynamic development of the Viennese life science companies would not have been possible without the support of a first class academic infrastructure. With more than 35,000 students in 22 academic institutions in the life sciences alone, Vienna educates more young scientists than any other city in Austria. The bandwidth of the institutes’ landscape is particularly large. It includes classical academic education at the University of Vienna as well as training in specialist disciplines in ba-

Biotechnology in Vienna – Facts & Figures Biotechnology in Austria is among the industry sectors with the greatest future potential. In the last ten years, a lively scene has developed nationwide with Vienna hosting 61 companies. As shown in Tab. 4, the capital is home to 43 companies that are completely dedicated to biotechnology (called dedicated companies, see OECD definition p. 151). They have been attracting attention since day one – particularly in the most demanding discipline of biotechnology: the development of new drugs. Around 70% of all Vienna-based biotech companies are active in this field (see Fig. 6). Other operations comprise largely various services in the life sciences field or industrial and agricultural biotechnology R&D. Alongside the dedicated companies, there are 18 in some cases considerably larger companies in which biotechnology represents one of several activities. They are referred to here as biotechnology-active companies. The subsidiaries of international pharmaceutical companies such as Baxter, Boehringer Ingelheim or Eli Lilly, which fall into this category, can be consid-

ered as the nucleus out of which Austria's modern biotech industry arose.

Dynamic Start-up Scene In recent years, the news coming out of Vienna has been predominantly positive. Enterprises such as the vaccine specialist AFFiRiS, the cancer experts at Apeiron or the next generation antibody company F-star have made international names for themselves due to excellent clinical results and licensing agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies. The fertile climate also attracts newcomers such as PDC Biotech which moved to Vienna from Canada in 2008 to develop drugs against preterm labor. Most recently (and after this survey was concluded), the vaccine developer Hookipa Biotech managed to pocket some of the rare early-stage venture capital. Renowned international investors like Sofinnova Partners or Forbion brought in more than 7 million euros in the first financing round. Most biotech companies engage in the field of health/medicine but numerous companies are also active in areas apart from drug development (see Fig.

Average Age: 7.1 years Fig. 7: Distribution of Vienna-based dedicated biotech companies according to their founding year

The average age of a Viennese biotechnology company is only 7.1 years (see Fig. 7). Due to their youth and highly research-oriented nature, the dedicated companies generated sales of 97 million euros which is relatively insignificant when compared to other future industries such as IT or medical technology. However, the special business model of the biotechnology companies with its long development times has been understood in Vienna: Long-term development of the biotechnology sector is being encouraged. Where this route may lead can

be seen in the mostly established biotech-active companies which earned approx. 786 million euros in 2010 (see Tab. 4). Together with the sales earned by dedicated companies, Vienna has the one billion mark in revenues in sight. Positive developments like these are honored by investors. Last year, 58 million euros of capital flowed into Vienna-based biotech companies. 14 million euros of this came from venture capital firms, another 28 million euros came from other private sources like business angels. By now, the industry sector has reached a critical mass, which means that it can also cope with development setbacks in individual companies and survive without crippling damage. Strong Investment in Research and Development In 2010, the dedicated biotech companies spent 146 million euros on research and development. Thus, the investment is 1.5 times higher than the yearly sales achieved by dedicated biotech firms. This shows that the industry is still young, but furthermore it demonstrates that a considerable amount of capital

Biotech “Made in Vienna” – 22 Products in Clinical Development

Nearly 7,500 Jobs in Biotechnology

Two biopharmaceutical products developed in Vienna are currently on the market: an anti-viral nasal spray against the common cold, developed by Marinomed, and a vaccine against Japanese Encephalitis, developed by Intercell. Nine further biological agents are expected to demonstrate their efficacy for patient therapy in clinical phase II. Among them is a compound against serious skin infections and bacterial pneumonia caused by drug-resistant bacteria, developed by Nabriva. Finally, there are 13 components (see Fig. 8) in phase I. Companies like Apeptico are at this stage. More than 30 compounds could be added to the clinical pipeline in coming years if the preclinical projects clear further development hurdles. In total, the “Vienna pipeline” of the dedicated companies amounts

Overall nearly 7,500 people are employed in the biotech industry in Vienna, of which 848 people work in dedicated and 6,650 people in biotech-active companies (see Tab. 4). The proportion of women among employees in dedicated biotech companies is 56%, much higher than in almost any other hightech sector (see Fig. 10). As elsewhere in Europe, the biotech companies in Vienna are relatively small. As shown in Fig. 9, almost half employ less than ten people – expensive, know-how intensive services such as the set up and execution of clinical trials or management of the patent portfolio are typically outsourced. This in turn provides fertile ground for specialized service providers that have also settled in the capital. Every fifth biotech-active company belongs to this group.

Vienna-based AFFiRiS AG is one of the world’s leading pioneers in the development of vaccines against widespread diseases. It’s innovative platform – the AFFITOM© technology – enables it to develop custom-designed vaccines against the body’s own proteins which are at the center of chronic conditions such as Alzheimer‘s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arteriosclerosis or hypertension. Blockbuster Vaccines

Walter Schmidt together with his partner Frank Mattner, set up AFFiRiS AG which has been managed by both since 2003 and it was no accident that they chose Vienna. Following his doctorate, Schmidt worked on research in Max Birnstiel’s team at the Institute of Molecular Pathology in Vienna. He was already a founder member of Intercell AG in 1998.

AFFiRiS first attracted attention in 2008 with a large-scale licensing deal. The British pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline signed a contract worth a total of 430 million euros giving it the rights to the two most advanced Alzheimer’s vaccines developed by ­AFFiRiS. Both partners have since made such good progress that the licensing agreement has been extended to include another vaccine developed by ­AFFiRiS. Having achieved the primary study objective of running two phase I trials at once, AFFiRiS AG was able to demonstrate the safety and the excellent tolerance of the two Alzheimer’s

vaccines AD01 and AD02. What was particularly remarkable was that initial indications of efficacy were already showing up. A phase II study with AD02 is currently running in several European countries. The intention is to treat 420 patients in all. However, developing active ingredients for Alzheimer’s is not the only project AFFiRiS is involved in. The pipeline is full to bursting. There are more than ten other vaccines in development. The preclinical studies for Parkinson’s and arteriosclerosis are almost complete and the clinical phase I trials are scheduled to start. Development of the Parkinson’s vaccine PD01 was even awarded a financial grant by the prestigious Michael J. Fox Foundation in October 2011. Development successes have repeatedly made it easy for the company to attract capital. So far, however, the company has stayed faithful to one investor. MIG Fonds, the leading specialist for venture capital in the German-speaking countries, has invested 11.5 million euros in the company since it was set up. Substantial public funding was also provided by austria wirtschaftsservice, FFG and ZIT.

Vienna’s APEIRON Biologics AG has already worked wonders in only five years. Out-licensing, in-licensing, a pipeline spanning preclinical to phase III projects – the company has already achieved all of this even though it only started operations in early 2006. At the same time, the management, led by chief executive officer Hans Loibner, pays strict attention to capital efficiency. So far, the company has been financed by private investors and employees as well as from public funding from aws, FFG and ZIT. In addition, they closed a licensing contract with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in February 2010, which could earn Apeiron up to 236 million euros. In the course of this deal, GSK also became a shareholder of Apeiron. GSK has already transferred 12.5 million euros of this in advance and received the rights to APN01, an enzyme that could be used in the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome and a variety of other diseases. The concept was initially researched in the laboratories of Josef Penninger, scientific director of the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA) in Vienna. The geneticist is a co-founder and major share-

holder of Apeiron. It was his idea to fight acute respiratory distress syndrome with recombinant ACE2. Nowadays, the angiotensin-converting enzymes are linked mainly to the regulation of blood pressure. The intention of current clinical studies is to demonstrate that their potential is far from exhausted. Apeiron has subsequently in-licensed new clinical projects to complement its pipeline. In the process, the company took over the recombinant human enzyme SOD, status phase II, from Polymun Scientific GmbH. SOD is about to enter a clinical trial for the topical treatment of skin damage following radiation therapy as a part of cancer treatment. Apeiron also made use of its connections to Big Pharma. As a result, it acquired an antibody-IL2 fusion protein for the treatment of neuroblastoma in children from the German Merck KGaA. The last cooperation that Apeiron entered into was with St. Anna Children’s Cancer Hospital in Vienna for an antibody in the same indication but with a different subset of patients. The phase III project involves study centers in 20 countries. 160 children have already been recruited.

Hans Loibner has been CEO of APEIRON Biologics AG in Vienna since October 2005. He has 35 years experience working both in Big Pharma and Biotech, with a focus on cancer immunotherapy. After spending 20 years in the R&D management of Sandoz and Novartis, he set up the cancer immunotherapy specialist Igeneon in 1999 and acted as CEO until mid 2004.

Fighting flu where it enters the human body. This is the aim of AVIR Green Hills Biotechnology AG which is developing next generation influenza vaccines. The motto: “A nasal vaccine spray instead of injection”. In April, the company started a trivalent phase I/II trial during which the seasonal influenza vaccine was tested for the first time in its final composition. Fighting the Flu!

Thomas Muster is the Chief Executive Officer, founder and scientific manager of AVIR Green Hills Biotechnology AG. After starting his scientific career at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Thomas Muster was drawn to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York where he worked on retroviruses such as HIV and influenza viruses.

80 volunteers between the ages of 16 and 60 were included in the study. The trial was conducted at the Department of Clinical Pharmacology at the Medical University of Vienna and included a trivalent formulation – this means a vaccine comprising three influenza strains H1N1, H3N2 and B. In the clinical trial, AVIR Green Hills uses its particularly efficient live-attenuated deltaFLU vaccine from which the pathogenicity factor NS1 has been removed. This approach combines maximum efficacy with excellent safety and tolerance. This has already been demonstrated in previous clinical trials. The vaccine was produced

in cell cultures, a modern method that replaces the traditional production method using hens’ eggs. Leading European Specialist AVIR Green Hills is also well-connected at an international level. In the European Commission’s 6th Framework Program, the company led the FLUVACC consortium which received 9.2 million euros of funding for the development of an intranasal nasal influenza vaccine. Alongside the public funding, which included a recent grant of 1.6 million euros from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and substantial financing from aws and ZIT, the research work of AVIR Green Hills is mainly financed by business angels. A new round of financing was only completed last year. Additionally, there are advanced activities to conclude licensing contracts for the intranasal vaccine deltaFLU in several territories. With reports of success like this in the bag, AVIR Green Hills is an attractive candidate for investment and for commercial success.

Company founders from North America don't often find their way to Europe. Diane Kalina and Patricia Griffin made an exception in this case: PDC Biotech GmbH which they set up in Vienna has brought them success in the federal capital. The two managing directors were working as consultants in the biotechnology sector in Canada and among their clients was Theratechnologies Inc. Preventing Premature Labor The company wanted to concentrate on its Phase III project and so was on the lookout for a buyer for a very promising earlier stage technology; a peptide that can prevent preterm labor and painful uterine contractions during menstruation. Premature births are among the greatest peri­natal challenges in industrialized countries. They are usually preceded by preterm labor. The prostaglandin F2αreceptor antagonist is intended to prevent this. So far there are no alternative treatments that are effective and safe for the fetus and mother. Along with emotional stress and the risk to the child’s life, preterm births cause significant costs. Experts assume these to be in excess

of 25,000 euros which is what it costs to treat a premature baby. Kalina and Griffin identified the need, in-licensed the drug candidate PDC31 and set up PDC Biotech in Vienna. Seed financing was successfully obtained by aws. With a set-up grant of 1 million euros, the founding team was able to inspire prestigious investors. Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners and MIG invested approximately 4 million euros shortly after the set-up. Furthermore, PDC received funding by ZIT in the framework of the call “Patients in Focus 2009”. Using the funds from the Series A round, the company is now completing a Phase I trial to assess safety as well as effects on uterine contractility in healthy women with primary dysmenorrhea. The results should ultimately impress and attract further investors for a Series B round. The company's immediate aim post-Series B, is to advance PDC31 to the next stage of development – Phase II – and study the effects of PDC31 in pregnant women with preterm labour. The goal is to determine whether PDC31 can inhibit uterine contractions halt the progression of preterm labor to protect young life.

Diane Kalina and Patricia Griffin are the founders and managing directors of PDC. During their careers both have gained experience in management positions with leading pharma companies on both sides of the Atlantic. Prior to starting up PDC, both cofounders worked as consultants for pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

Medtech in Vienna – Facts & Figures The healthcare system in Austria enjoys an excellent international reputation. This is due not least to the renowned hospitals located in the country's capital Vienna which have both superbly qualified medical staff and first-class technical facilities incorporating stateof-the-art technology. As a result, Austria and especially Vienna create not only an attractive market for medical technology products but also form an important location for the development and production of several medical devices. This activity is based on a long, in some cases centuries old tradition of engineering and precision mechanics in the city's companies. Medical devices, as defined by the Global Medical Devices Nomenclature Agency (GMDN), are the main products of the 33 dedicated medical technology companies resident within the city limits of Vienna (see Tab. 7). Examples are Braincon Technologies Group (electromechanical and e-health solutions) or Orthorobot GmbH (dental technology). They are involved exclusively in research, development and manufacture of these devices. In another five Vienna-based

companies, medical technology is one of several areas of work. Among these are Sempermed GmbH (gloves) or Telecare Systems GmbH (emergency call systems). These firms are called medtech-active companies according to the OECD classification for biotech firms that is also applied here to medical technology.

than 800 million euros (see Tab. 7). Around 116 million euros of this sum is attributable to the group of dedicated medical technology companies (see definition on p. 151). The sometimes considerably larger medtech-active companies like Carl Zeiss produce total revenues of 719 million euros in Vienna. Short Development Times In contrast to biotechnology, medical technology is characterized by significantly shorter development times and – generally speaking – a lower development risk combined with a lower attrition rate. This can be seen above all in the ratio of investment in research and development to turnover. With the 116 million euros in sales already referred to, they are generating revenue that is approximately four times higher than their R&D expenditure of 30 million euros. Viennese medtech companies spend more on R&D than their counterparts in the rest of the country. The venture capi-

1,600 People in Dedicated Firms Like their counterparts in the biotechnology industry, the medical technology companies are also relatively small in terms of staff. Well in excess of half (58%) of the firms employ less than ten people (see Fig. 12), which is typical for many high-tech industries. However, with a share of around one third (36%), a large number of the companies have already left the most difficult decade of their early existence behind them. All together, the medtech firms in Vienna employ about 1,660 people. Half of them work at the dedicated medtech companies and the other half in the group of medtech-active companies. Male employees dominate the medical technology area (see Fig. 13), although not as heavily as in comparable sectors such as information technology or mechanical engineering.

Carl reiner GmbH Category ....................................... medical Device Development Foundation .......................................................................... 1912 staff ....................................................................................... 30

The Reiner family was working in the Austrian capital city of Vienna as surgical instrument manufacturers as long as 150 years ago. Today, the roots of Carl Reiner GmbH reach almost as far back into the past with its predecessor having been established in the heart of Vienna's hospital and university quarter in 1912. Carl Reiner's building in the Mariannengasse is still the company's headquarters but other buildings in Vienna and the site in Graz have been added in the meantime and reflect the company’s growth. From Tonsil Compressors …

Peter rossegger has been the managing director of Carl Reiner since March 2011. He joined the company in 1988 for the first time and then left it in 1990 for a period of five years to pursue other opportunities in the medtech area. After his return in 1995, Peter Rossegger established the international marketing and distribution of the company's innovative jet ventilator system TwinStream.

Since it was set up, the Carl Reiner company has dedicated itself to the construction and development of state-of-the-art surgical instruments and equipment. What started back then with the manufacture of tonsil compressors based on Dr. Haslinger's model, reached its provisional peak in 2005 with the innovative Twinstream respirator. The old-established Viennese company took the plunge into the global market with the first microprocessor-

controlled unit for jet ventilation. The special ventilation technique was researched by Carl Reiner in cooperation with the ENT clinic of Vienna’s General Hospital (AKH) – Europe's largest hospital – and other partners. The special feature of this innovative procedure is that it enables patients to be ventilated without a separate air tube. The space gained as a result is particularly important during operations on the lung or trachea when surgeon and anesthetist have to share access to the patient. Now, thanks to integrated pipes and nozzles, the apparatus can take the respiratory air directly to the patient. … to High-tech Respirators. With its broad product range, Carl Reiner GmbH is also widely recognized to be a skilful contact in widespread indications such as cardiology and urology. The Viennese medical technology specialist now carries out the planning of complete medical facilities and offers integrated system solutions to achieve the aim becoming a singlesource supplier for its customers.

Since it was set up in 2003, CRYPTAS it-security GmbH has specialized in the development of security solutions in the field of electronic healthcare systems. The company focuses, among other things, on solutions in the eHealth sector which allow feasible management of asymmetric encryption systems. eHealth is more than just the use of IT in healthcare. By networking information and processes, additional benefits are provided for the patient and the health service provider. The only obstacle is: data security. Health data is one of the most sensitive information and, therefore, has to be protected in the best possible manner with IT security technologies. The innovative software CAVE (Card Authetication Virtualization Environment), developed by CRYPTAS has recently been supporting the electronic administration of the Statutory Health Insurance for Dentists in Westphalia-Lippe: the intelligent Smart Card System makes online billing easier and saves time, money and effort for service. Digital certificates on smart cards can be used for strong user authentication, digital document signature and of course also for the encryption of sensi-

tive information – all are crucial for today's eHealth applications. Security and protection of data privacy must not be seen as cumbersome features – they are critical for establishing trust which is the basis for user acceptance. Although smart card technology was always considered to be secure, it was also labeled user-unfriendly, the second major success factor for user acceptance. CRYPTAS has solved this problem by developing a clientless smart card concept. CAVE enables smart cards to be used without the need for previously installed software. Instead, the processes are outsourced to a central environment that can be made very secure. As a result, users no longer need to deal with complicated technical processes and can use the system immediately and without prior knowledge. It is enough to simply connect via the web browser to the online service by employing a userfriendly plug & play technology and insert the chip card. CRYPTAS received support from ZIT during the development of CAVE. The IT company developed this system on its own and fully researched the technology behind it as part of the ZIT-Call “Patients in Focus 2009” funding project.

stefan Bumerl is managing director of CRYPTAS it-security GmbH which he set up in 2003. He has worked in the field of data security, strong authentication and smart cards for over 15 years and is acknowledged nationally and internationally as an expert in this sector. He and his company have implemented many projects for protecting digital identities.

Miracor Medical Systems is one of the younger companies in Viennaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical technology scene. It was founded in May 2008 with capital backing from Earlybird and Delta Partners. The company wants to establish a new standard of care to treat cardiac diseases such as heart attack and heart failure using the PICSO technology. This concept was conceived by Miracorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder and Chief Scientific Advisor, Prof. Werner Mohl, who is a practising cardiac surgeon at the Medical University of Vienna.

Jon H. Hoem has been CEO of Miracor since the company was founded in May 2008. He has 23 years of experience of advanced medical devices in cardiology and cardiac surgery. Prior to joining Miracor, he was Senior R&D Engineer at GE Vingmed Sound, Vice President of Sales&Marketing in Medi-Stim and VP Europe for the US medical technology company AtriCure.

Patients recovering from an interventional procedure can benefit from the Pressure-controlled Intermittent Coronary Sinus Occlusion (PICSO) technology. The system consists of an innovative cardiac catheter and a control unit. This unit is used for controlled inflation and deflation of the balloon at the catheter tip. After treating a heart attack using a stent, the CE-marked unit is used to intermittently block the coronary sinus venous blood in a controlled manner thus improving the microcirculation in the compromised cardiac tissue. In around 350,000 heart attack patients in the USA and Europe, the microcirculation in the heart muscle is less than optimal even after the actu-

al blockage in the arterial blood vessel has been removed. Initial clinical trials in March 2011 showed that PICSO has the potential to reduce ischemia in these patients. The plan now is to corroborate the results in the broader-based, multicenter RAMSES study. The concept has impressed the German venture capitalist fund SHS which was the lead investor in Miracorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second financing round in September 2011. Since its foundation in May 2008, Miracor has secured a total of 14.9 million euros in venture capital and grants to develop the company. Full European market launch of PICSO will start in the second half of 2013. For Miracor this would be the impulse to make the leap across the Atlantic. The outcome of the multi-center RAMSES trial will lay the foundations for establishing European sales and reimbursement. Europe will be the test market for the new technology providing both clinical and commercial proof of concept. Several leading medical device corporations are seeking medical devices which address the big unmet clinical need which Miracor is targeting. This exit route has lately proven to be very profitable for medtech investors.

The pathologistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience still comes up trumps when evaluating blood and tissue samples. The quantitative analysis of different cell types in blood or tissue is determined by a laboratory employee who counts the cells. A shortage of qualified staff and an increasing number of analysis samples challenge laboratory systems of today. Automating Blood Sample Analysis Vienna-based TissueGnostics GmbH has set itself the target of automating these processes with a new software program thereby revolutionizing the analysis of blood and tissue samples. Having machines carry out the analysis of tissue samples and pre-classification of leucocytes on blood slides sounds much easier than it really is. Georg Steiner and Dr. Rupert Ecker, the present managing directors of TissueGnostics, researched the basic principles of the technology 10 years ago. They set up TissueGnostics in 2003 and a year later presented the technology to doctors for the diagnosis of prostate cancer in tissue samples. The requirements are a high-power microscope and a software program which uses a

specially developed algorithm to identify and display pathogenic patterns in cells. With TissueFAXS, HistoFAXS and HemoFAXS, TissueGnostics markets three different systems for analysing tissue, stained tissue sections and blood samples. The products are already being marketed globally with the help of distributors. The company has its own branches in the USA and Romania. The international expansion was financed by the Wiener Wachstumsfonds which has an almost 50 % stake in the company. The best argument in favor of the TissueGnostics systems is the saving in time: Once the slides are on the microscope, the rest is plain sailing. Large Number of Applications What used to be laborious detail work now takes place automatically with a minimum of time and effort. The system is also completely objective. Analyses can be saved and assessed retrospectively. The systems developed by TissueGnostics have already proven their suitability in a large number of practical applications in facilities around the world, like the Harvard Medical School and University of Heidelberg.

Georg steiner together with Rupert Ecker, manages the medical technology company TissueGnostics GmbH. The two biologists Steiner and Ecker already worked together at Viennaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University Clinic in the mid-nineties and since then have dedicated themselves to improving medical microscopy which also includes the setting up of TissueGnostics in 2003.

definitions

151

Glossary Biotechnology is …

A medical device is …

… defined as the application of science and technology to living organisms, as well as parts, products and models thereof, to alter living or non-living materials for the production of knowledge, goods and services. The concept applied to this survey was developed by the OECD in 2004 (see P. 153).

… defined as any instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, material or other article, whether used alone or in combination, including the software intended by its manufacturer to be used specifically for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes such as: diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of a disease, injury, handicap or the investigation, replacement or modification of the anatomy or of a physiological process.

A dedicated biotech company is … …  defined as a biotechnology active firm whose predominant activity involves the application of biotechnological techniques to produce goods or services and/or the performance of biotechnological R&D.

A dedicated medtech company is … … defined as a company whose key aims are the manufacture of medical devices or the provision of services from the field of medical technology.

A biotech-active company is … … defined as a firm that applies biotechnological techniques for the purpose of implementing new or significantly improved products or processes (per the Oslo Manual (OECD, 1997) for the measurement of innovation). It excludes end users which innovate simply by using biotechnological products as intermediate inputs (for instance, detergent manufacturers which change their formulation to include enzymes produced by other firms via biotechnology techniques).

A medtech-active company is … … defined as a company with a main corporate aim that is not exclusively the manufacture of products or the provision of services within medical technology.

A life science related company is … ... defined as a company providing technical products and/or biotechnology/medical device-specific services for dedicated and active companies. Examples are commercial research institutions, sales offices, suppliers, consultants, information providers and publishers, fairs, recruiters and other.


Methodology

153

Methodology of this Report Biotechnology: In December 2004, the OECD standardized the broad range of existing definitions of the term biotechnology. Since then, all OECD countries have been called upon to carry out surveys on biotechnology, following the so-called Framework for Biotechnology Statistics (www.oecd. org). The OECD recognizes two different categories of companies within the biotech industry: dedicated biotechnology company and other biotechnologically active companies. The first of these definitions, according to the OECD, applies to biotechnologically active enterprises, whose core company goals are the application of biotechnological procedures in the manufacturing of products, the supply of services or in the execution of biotechnological research and development. Unlike the dedicated biotech companies, the central aims of other biotechnologically active companies do not exclusively lie in the application of biotechnological procedures. The OECD thereby also includes in this category companies where biotechnology makes up only one part of the business activity. Companies are defined as biotechnologically active companies if they use biotechnological procedures for recently developed or significantly improved products or production processes. The central company aims must not be solely in the use of biotechnological procedures for the production of products, the supply of services or in the execution of biotechnological research and development. Examples of such companies are pharma firms, chemical companies or seed manufacturers. Medtech: There are two challenges when attempting to isolate medical technology conceptually. On one hand, the field is extremely diverse in terms of content and the range of products

covers everything from latex gloves to CAT scanners. On the other hand, due to the high innovation rate, new and above all innovative products are continually being added. At licensing level, the term ‘medical device’ applies as specified in EU directive 93/42/EEC. The directive differentiates between medical devices, accessories, in-vitro diagnostic medical devices and custom-made devices. The medical device nomenclature “GMDN” (global medical device nomenclature for the purpose of regulatory data exchange) was additionally introduced in November 2001 to better illustrate the different facets of medical technology in international comparison. The GMDN consolidates the wide variety of medical technolo­gy products into generic categories. It replaced the previously applicable universal medical device nomenclature system (UMDNS) which was no longer up-to-date. GMDN is adjusted on an ongoing basis and currently contains 14 main categories with almost 9,000 terms and over 10,000 synonyms for medical devices. The nomenclature was adjusted for the survey. One category (supplementary equipment) was deleted an two new ones were added: “software, eHealth” and “others”. These categories form the basis for the survey described in this brochure. It has been supplemented by the definition of dedicated companies which was coined by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and was developed for biotechnology in 2004. With this in mind, when applied to medical technology, a company is described as a “dedicated company” if its key aims are the manufacture of products or the provision of services from the field of medical technology. A company is deemed to be a “company active in

medical technology” if its main corporate aim is not exclusively the manufacture of products or the provision of services within medical technology. Survey: BIOCOM AG created a questionnaire based on these definitions for the purposes of this survey. Between March and June 2011 BIOCOM contacted a total of 402 Austrian medtech companies and 214 biotech firms asking them to fill in the questionnaire. The corporate database of BIOCOM AG was used in the selection of those written to and in addition the GMDN classification was used to identify other potential companies. In Vienna 20 medtech companies and 37 biotech firms responded, either in writing or by way of additional supplementary telephone interviews. This equates to a response rate of 52% in medtech and 61% in biotech. In line with OECD guidelines, care was taken when selecting the companies to ensure that all the companies recorded are involved in medical technology in Austria and are based in the country. For this reason, we also considered companies that are majority-owned by a non-Austrian parent company but which have R&D activities in Austria. The survey was only conducted for the Austrian sites of a company when recording jobs, business figures and business segments. A company with more than one site in Austria is only taken into consideration once with correspondingly accumulated values. The cut-off date for the survey was 31.12.2010.
