Biomedical Device Innovation Partnership Zone

The Biomedical Device Innovation Partnership Zone is one of 16 regional Innovation Partnership Zones (IPZ) in Washington State designated as part of the state’s efforts to stimulate the growth of industry clusters within specific geographic areas. The Biomedical Device Innovation Partnership Zone received its designation in 2007 through a competitive process targeted at regions with an existing concentration of industry (established and start-up) and a higher education institution within its purview.

The organization’s focus is to accelerate the growth of the biomedical device industry in Washington State through programs targeted at: promoting new company formation and job creation through the commercialization of innovative medical technologies; fostering industry interaction and partnerships to strengthen the regional biomedical device eco-system; monitoring, measuring, and reporting on the industry’s progress and trends; and strengthening workforce development through industry alignment with education institutions to meet the ever changing needs of the industry.

The Innovation Partnership Zone is an extremely collaborative organization lead by the primary founding partners for the group: the City of Bothell; Economic Alliance Snohomish County; Economic Development Council of Seattle & King County; University of Washington - Bothell, Life Science Washington (formerly the Biotechnology & Biomedical Association); and the Washington State Department of Commerce. Working with a host of supporting partners the organization is the lead convener of the biomedical industry in the region.
