European VC life sciences funding continues to decline

In 2022, the venture capital funding for life sciences in Europe continues to weaken, further widening the gap to 2021 (EUR 9.4bn vs. EUR 6.5bn). The cumulative financing volume in August 2022 falls by more than -31% compared to August 2021.

The cumulative number of closed deals in 2022 started to deviate from 2021 in May, leaving a gap of -17% in August compared to 2021.

The numbers do not suggest a recovery over the last few weeks.
