Blue Horizon


Blue Horizon is a start-up founded in 2017 by OHB SE, one of the three leading space companies in Europe. The company’s core competences are life sciences, system engineering and bioprocess engineering. The team formerly belonged to the life sciences team of OHB System AG in Bremen. Since the whole team has moved from OHB System AG to Blue Horizon SaRL, the knowledge and experience gained over the past years has been transferred completely.
