HGF Heidelberg launched following the merge of HGF and Patronus IP in July 2018. 

Heidelberg is a small technology location with a strong focus on biotechnology. One of the most renowned biological research laboratories in the world, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), is located here. It is also the location of the German Cancer Research Center (GVRC). Not least because of the Ruprecht-Karls-University the potential for innovations in this metropolitan area is great.
