Pharma cluster wraps up 100-Year celebration with successful Pharma Future Run

Pivot Park hosted the Pharma Future Run and Walk last Sunday, concluding a year-long celebration of Oss’s 100-year pharmaceutical history. We joined forces with Aspen API, MSD, Organon, and the Oss municipality together with the SNS Oss City Run organizers. The starting and finishing lines were right here at Pivot Park.

For participants, the focus was on enjoying the experience rather than winning. Runners had the choice of running laps of about 3 kilometres, and walkers were welcome too. There was even a kids’ run!

The Pharma Future Run injected vibrancy into Oss as nearly 400 participants, both young and old, raced through Pivot Park, passing by the pharmaceutical cluster companies.

Pivot Park is proud to be a part of this celebration, honouring Oss’s pharmaceutical history, and eagerly anticipates continuing to contribute to future innovation to improve global health.

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?


The development of medicines in Oss began one hundred years ago. It was then that the foundations were laid for what would become a flourishing pharmaceutical sector in the Netherlands, leading to groundbreaking discoveries such as insulin and the anti-conception pill.
