Jean-Paul Scheuren

Director and co-owner of House of Biohealth and Heal Campus

In 1992, Jean-Paul graduated as Licencié en Science Economique Appliquée from the Institut d’Administration et de Gestion at the Université Catholique de Louvain (ULC). In 1993, he started his professional career as Conseiller Economique at the Fédération des Artisans, Luxembourg’s national federation for craftmanship. During this occupation, he was able to develop a widespread network with economic and social actors in Luxembourg.

In 2005, he joined the inventor team of Axoglia Therapeutics SA and started his passion for the life science sector. From 2009 to 2016, he was appointed President of the Biohealth Cluster Luxembourg, created by Luxinnovation, to develop the Luxembourg Biohealth sector, in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

In 2012 he started the House of Biohealth – www.hobh.lu - project, an accelerator infrastructure for private life science companies and public research units. One of the main challenge was to build a Lab infrastructure without knowing the future occupant, thus needing a maximum of flexibility and modularity. HoB offers today 9 000 sqm of Lab infrastructure and 6 000 sqm of Office space, Start-Up desks, Meeting and Conference rooms in HoB 1 - HoB 3. It is a private owned infrastructure developed in close collaboration with the Ministry of Economics.

The Incubator Lab, a special facility for Life science start-up companies, offering completely equipped ready to use lab infrastructure, was inaugurated in 2021, thus adding a well needed contribution to the development of the Life science community in Luxembourg.

The next logical step was to go further and he developed with his partners and the Ministry of Economics and the Ministry of Health the ambitious HE:AL Campus project with the vision to create a globally recognized and interconnected Campus to be a world class health science hub, where data driven companies and their talents can thrive. The 60 000- 80 000 sqm Campus is today in a Master Plan phase and the first buildings are to be started in 2025.
