    20 years of Medicon Valley and Medicon Valley Alliance

    Greater Copenhagen has developed into the leading Nordic region for life science in the past ten years. The majority of the Danish life science companies are located in the Region, and Medicon Valley overshadows the other Nordic countries when it comes to the number of international patent applications for life science. On the other side of the Strait in the Skåne region, a new beacon is being erected with the new materials research facilities ESS and MAX IV, which will become an important resource for the Region’s life science companies.

    On MVA’s founding day in 1997, 23 regional actors applied for membership. MVA became a fully fledged membership organization in 2000 and today we have approximately 250 members. Together they employ approximately 140.000 people within life science. They represent the region’s triple helix and include universities, hospitals, human life science businesses, regional governments and service providers.
