The right conditions to discover, grow and succeed

Pivot Park is one of the fastest growing campuses in the Netherlands, in one of the most science-focused regions in the country. Building on a proven track record, the campus is now focused on the next phase of its growth, including constructing two new buildings and redeveloping an existing one.

World-class biopharmaceutical facilities
All you need from discovery to market

Pivot Park is the ideal location for innovators in the pharmaceutical sector. We help entrepreneurs achieve their ambitions by providing cutting-edge facilities and infrastructure, and by creating and stimulating mutual learning and knowledge exchange. Park tenants include on-site funding advisors with expertise in mergers, acquisitions and partnerships, and many Pivot Park companies offer their highly specialised equipment for use by the community.

The Pivot Park ecosystem helps ambitious entrepreneurs mitigate some of the risks inherent in drug discovery and R&D. It can also ensure they get the support they need to accelerate their growth. By connecting organisations, we accelerate the development of pharmaceutical innovation to the benefit of the companies and people who work here.

In addition to being a centre for pharma knowledge, Pivot Park is also part of the life sciences, agri-food processing and logistics axis in and around the city of Oss. This provides an exceptional network of industry, research, academic and professional training organisations to support your business. Oss is also part of the wider knowledge network in the province of North Brabant.

Pivot Park tenants can choose from a bare bones shell (with the necessary infrastructure) that they can design and adapt as they like, or turnkey offices and labs that are ready to start using within minutes of moving in. Think of everything from desks and chairs to a high-speed LAN, excellent WiFi, conferencing facilities, fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, cell-incubators, etc. We can also offer custom R&D facilities for your exclusive use. And if for some reason we don’t have what you need, we will get it for you.
Pivot Park has a single environmental permit that encompasses the activities of all our tenants. We also conduct annual audits to ensure that all tenants meet the permit criteria.

Pivot Park’s Open Access Lab is a facility with advanced analytical and imaging equipment available for hire on an ad hoc basis. Clients are welcome to use the labs’ systems, in this way gaining simple access to advanced instrumentation for their research projects. Experts are available for training, to offer advice and for troubleshooting. The Open Access Laboratories provide drug discovery services for assay development and hit-2-lead testing to find novel leads for drug development. Contact us to discuss the possibilities!

A number of companies at Pivot Park offer their technology breakthroughs as platforms that can be used to develop multiple treatments based on a single technology.

The Pivot Park Screening Centre offers ultra-High-Throughput Screening (uHTS) and lab automation services to accelerate drug discovery programmes. The system comprises three robot pods connected by a conveyer belt system. It further includes an online compound store with capacity for 2.5 million samples, ECHO acoustic dispensers for contact-free dispensing and a wide range of instruments to perform fully automated biochemical and cellular assays in 1536 or 384 well format. The uHTS routinely measures over 200,000 data samples per day.

BioConnection and Ardena offer contract services and GMP manufacturing for the development and production of sterile and non-sterile pharmaceutical drug products. The Pivot Park facility is EMA and FDA certified and is ideal for small to medium batch sizes for both clinical trial material and commercial product supply.

Pivot Park has a number of tenants who, taken together, provide a wide range of analytical and entrepreneurial services on site. These include lab services, regulatory consultants, patent advisors, commercial law services and knowledge-sharing stimulators. This makes attending appointments easy and helps you to bounce ideas off people and learn from each other informally.

From lounge areas and coffee corners to high-tech meeting rooms, a spacious auditorium and a restaurant, Pivot Park has lots of shared spaces for people to meet and share, both formally and informally.

Existing accommodation

Pivot Park is located on the Moleneind site in Oss, where Organon started up in 1923. Today, the buildings have been modernised and repurposed to create an inspiring campus environment that blends old with new, history with high-tech.

Now it’s time to celebrate!

We are therefore delighted to invite you – along with all your fellow CEOs at Pivot Park – to a special night out featuring inspiring art, a wonderful dinner and lots of opportunities to network and exchange ideas.

Erwin Wurm | Am I a House?

For the first time, the artist shows a cross-section of his work, from Narrow Furniture to One Minute Sculptures, within the walls of a historic building. Villa Constance, a former home that today houses Museum Jan Cunen, is not only a location but also part of the conversation. Because what exactly is a house?
