Proclinical’s rapid growth continues to gather momentum as the life sciences staffing solutions provider has announced the opening of a new office in Brussels, Belgium. With offices already in Frankfurt, Basel, London and Cambridge, this will be the fifth Proclinical base in Europe and will service Belgium’s emerging life sciences market, powered by its contributions to biotechnology innovation and a supportive R&D environment.
Proclinical supports the hiring needs for life science companies across the globe and is expanding into Brussels to meet the strong demand for specialist talent in Belgium, especially in the biotechnology and medical technology industries.

Managing the Brussels team will be client services director, Kate Adley, who commented, “Belgium is spearheading life science innovation with the highest number of clinical trials per capita in Europe. We are seeing very high demand from companies looking to expand their operations into Belgium to benefit from the country’s advanced R&D ecosystem.
