To whom it may concern
SGCI Chemie Pharma Schweiz changes to scienceindustries

scienceindustries is the new name of the Business Association Chemistry Pharma Biotech. The new name emphasizes the outstanding ability to innovate of the biggest Swiss export industry and on its commitment to make Switzerland a world leading site for production, research and business in the fields of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biotech.

On the occasion of the 129th General Assembly held in Domat/Ems today, scienceindustries was approved as the association's new name. Christoph Mäder, Chairman of scienceindustries, comments: "Under our new name we, as a leading export industry, intend to send a clear signal for scientific research and development in Switzerland. In this way, we are reinforcing our claim to continue making a major contribution to the quality of life and prosperity in Switzerland thanks to internationally competitive innovations. Each year, we invest more than 7 billion francs in research and development, equivalent to about 44 per cent of private investment on research in Switzerland."

Today scienceindustries comprises over 250 companies which operate in the fields of Life Sciences and Material Sciences. Its members are active mainly in research, development, manufacture and sale of pharmaceutical specialties, vitamins, industrial specialty chemicals, crop protection agents, together with aromas and fragrances. Originally founded in 1882, scienceindustries was then known as the Swiss Society of Chemical Industries (SGCI/SSCI) with headquarters in Zurich.
