    This paper examines place-specific factors affecting geographies of innovation, that is, the transfer of research from the laboratory to bedside in the healthcare sector in four European bioscience regions. These regions are Medical Delta (MD. Leiden, Rotterdam and Delft, Netherlands) Oxford and the Thames Valley, (OTV, UK), Biocat (Catalonia, Spain) and Life Science Zurich (LSZ, Switzerland). Evidence is drawn from the EU funded HealthTIES project (2010-2013). The analytical framework, the HealthTIES Innovation Cycle, is organised into resources (inputs), innovation system elements, and outcomes. The paper shows that each region represents different positions within international value chains of innovation in the healthcare sector. They range from a highly research intensive but relatively less in the way of commercial exploitation location (OTV) to a less research intensive but with more commercialization (LSZ).
