BioRegio STERN ­ Reutlingen's Lord Mayor Barbara Bosch is new chair of supervisory board
Reorganisation of Supervisory Board

(Stuttgart/Tübingen, 5 February 2010) ­ Reutlingen's Lord Mayor Barbara Bosch took up the reins today as the new chair of the Supervisory Board of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH. The role of deputy is being taken on by the previous chairman, Dr. Walter Rogg.

The Supervisory Board will continue to be fully committed to BioRegio STERN
Management GmbH successfully promoting biotechnology companies in the
Stuttgart and Neckar-Alb regions and in the cities of Stuttgart, Tübingen,
Esslingen and Reutlingen. The transfer of the chairperson's role from Dr.
Walter Rogg to his hitherto deputy Barbara Bosch signals continuity,
particularly as Dr. Rogg has become the new deputy.
Bosch, Lord Mayor of Reutlingen since 2003, is looking forward to her new
duties as head of the board: 'Collaboration on the Supervisory Board of
BioRegio STERN is shaped by knowledge of the opportunities that exist in the
biotech and medtech industries. Networking of research and economic
structures provides the basis for future innovation. The current economic
climate in particular shows that growing future-focused sectors by pooling
resources in multi-regional cooperation can benefit all partners. Success is
reflected in the growing number of companies and the jobs they create in
these high-tech fields.'
Dr. Walter Rogg ­ Managing Director of WRS, the Stuttgart Region Economic
Development Corporation ­ will also be providing active support for the work
of the network as deputy chairman of the Supervisory Board: 'BioRegio STERN
has been a driving force behind collaboration in the Stuttgart metropolitan
region since 2001. The network has scored considerable successes during this
period and this has also been honoured at national level in Germany, for
example with an award as one of Germany's best competence networks and
success in the ³Health Regions of the Future² competition organised by the
German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). We can carry this
success story forward thanks to the highly experienced team led by Dr.
Eichenberg and the continuity on the Supervisory Board.'
Changes in the composition of the entire supervisory board have been brought
about by recent local elections and the changes in personnel associated with
these. Regional councillors Roswitha Schenk and Helmut Hartmann (both
Stuttgart Region), Jeanette Wopperer (Regional Director of Verband Region
Stuttgart) and Eugen Höschele (Chairman of the Neckar-Alb Regional Planning
and Development Agency) will therefore replace four departing members.
In her first meeting as chair, Barbara Bosch wasted no time in highlighting
that BioRegio STERN probably faces its busiest year so far. Development of
the Users¹ Centre for Regenerative Medicine (REGiNA) is being driven
forward, while the website and the new hotline for
doctors and patients are due to go live early in the summer. BioStar 2010 in
October will once again see a major international congress take place in the
Dr. Klaus Eichenberg, Managing Director of BioRegio STERN Management GmbH,
is looking forward to continuing the excellent collaboration with the
Supervisory Board: 'Over the years, this board has shown outstanding
expertise and commitment in underpinning the philosophy of BioRegio STERN
and providing professional support in its activities. Ms. Bosch and Dr. Rogg
have always adopted a constructive approach to handling our projects. We
look forward to further successful collaboration.'
BioRegio STERN Management GmbH would like to take this opportunity to thank
Michael Euchner, Dr. Edmund Merkel, Claus Schmiedel, Member of the State
Parliament, and Dr. Jürgen Wurmthaler for their many years of service on the
Supervisory Board.
