Welcome to the MVA Oncology Network!

    Several members of Medicon Valley Alliance working with oncology have aired an interest in a forum for more specific professional and social networking within oncology. A group of members decided to explore this interest further and the idea of an MVA Oncology Network was born!

    The idea is to initiate an oncology network focusing 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 plan is for the network to consist 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.

    Medicon Valley Alliance has agreed to facilitate such a network and to a certain extent provide the logistic and secretarial support, if a sufficient number of members decided to pursue the idea and join the “Medicon Valley Alliance Oncology Network”. The plan is for the network to meet two-three 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. The language will be Danish, Swedish and or English depending on the participants and presentations.
