CEBR – Dr. Margot Jehle of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH elected to Board

(Stuttgart) – At the Annual Meeting in Stuttgart on 16 and 17 May 2023, Dr. Margot Jehle was newly elected to the Executive Board of the Council of European Bioregions (CEBR), a network comprising 44 members of life sciences clusters located throughout Europe. Dr. Jehle holds a PhD in chemistry and has been with BioRegio STERN Management GmbH since 2011. In her role as initiator and primary contact there, she is responsible for cooperation with neighbouring European countries. „I’m glad to be able to make a contribution to CEBR’s continued growth, working together to develop new ideas and formats that strengthen the cooperation between European life sciences clusters,“ she said following her election.

BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has been a member of CEBR since 2019. One example of its commitment to this organisation is being one of the partners involved in the joint Eurocluster project BioMan4R2, which offers financial support and networking opportunities to small and medium-sized bioproduct and medtech companies. „CEBR membership provides BioRegio STERN Management GmbH with specific information about upcoming invitations to tender and important contacts to other European life sciences clusters,“ added Dr. Jehle.

This year’s CEBR Annual Meeting was hosted by BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. Managing Director Dr. Klaus Eichenberg welcomed the participants to Stuttgart and emphasised: „Direct dialogue between stakeholders from all over Europe is indispensable. CEBR plays an important role in this regard. I’m delighted that Dr. Jehle will now also be helping to shape these activities on the Board.“ The meeting involved participants from all over Europe, who experienced a successful event and were impressed by the inspiring keynote speech of committed networker Dr. Ingmar Hoerr, co-founder and former CEO of CureVac in Tübingen.
