OSS – Soon it will be 100 years ago that the first medicines were made in Oss. A milestone that we are proud of and that we celebrate with a theme year: #100yearspharmafuture (September 2022 to October 2023). The initiative comes from Aspen Oss, MSD Nederland, Life Sciences campus Pivot Park, the municipality of Oss and Organon.

The preparations have started and the first plans are on the table. The initiative group is still looking for cooperation with companies and organizations. Do you have ideas for the theme year? Send an email to ondernemerszaken@oss.nl

With Organon, we were at the cradle of the pharmaceutical sector in the Netherlands, with groundbreaking discoveries such as insulin and the contraceptive pill. The companies are still strongly connected by the joint past. From the very first research to the large-scale commercial production of medicines.

“Every company in our cluster does work that matters”, says Wenny Raaijmakers of Organon. “After the anniversary year, no one doubts it: Oss is the pharmaceutical capital of the Netherlands”, according to Mayor Wobine Buijs-Glaudemans.
