Medicon Valley Alliance CSR-match-making is our new attempt to match Swedish and Danish life science companies with potentially interesting humanitarian projects with an explicit life science or healthcare dimension.
Below you will find brief presentations of relevant projects selected by Medicon Valley Alliance in partnership with among others Danish and Swedish Red Cross.
If you are interested in investigating a partnership with one of the projects presented, please contact them directly. A project can participate in the program for a maximum of 6 months. If no partner is found, Medicon Valley Alliance will automatically remove the project profile, which will then be quarantined for another six months?
If you have a project that you think I suitable for Medicon Valley Alliance CSR-match-making and should be presented on this page, contact Head of Communication and Public Affairs, David Munis Zepernick – see contact info to the left.
If you are a member of Medicon Valley Alliance looking for potentially interesting life science related CSR-projects in the region, we would also like to assist you with your search.
