    MVA Oncology Network is a professional and social network within oncology. The network focuses on best practice, experience and current challenges for public-private collaboration and the commercialization of oncology related R&D in the Medicon Valley region. The network consists of professors, PI and corporate level executives from the regional oncology eco-system. Membership is limited to Medicon Valley Alliance members only, but non-member organizations and companies are welcome to attend one network event to evaluate if a membership of the network is relevant. If so, becoming a member of Medicon Valley Alliance will automatically able you to join the oncology network.

    The network meets three-four times a year and with agendas to be decided on an ongoing basis by the network participants. As a rule, the meetings will be hosted by the members of the network, and on special occasions by Medicon Valley Alliance. It is the ambition that the meetings will be hosted evenly on Danish and Swedish venues.

    After the successful MVA Oncology Network Kick-off meeting in September, 2016, with more than 40 organizations participating, Medicon Valley Alliance, together with two of our members – Lund University and University of Copenhagen – now invites you to MVA Oncology Network and our 2nd meeting:
