Medicon Valley Alliance’s Annual Meeting 2017 is inspired by the Danish life science growth team´s recommendation published in March, which emphasized better health, more wealth and growth and more world class R&D within life science.
This year we focus on the parallel processes where Denmark and Sweden are developing their national life science strategies, and where we hope to see the unique bi-national Danish-Swedish perspective reflected in both national strategies. A perspective that will also be addressed in the presentation of “State of Medicon valley 2017 – an analysis of life science in Greater Copenhagen”. The analysis will be distributed at the meeting.
Based on the huge interest in last year´s topic, we have decided to continue the inspiring discussion about funding of innovation and the challenges relating to start-up, scale-up and commercialization of innovation.

Raise questions and follow discussions
For this year’s annual meeting we will use a system called Slido. Slido is a simple system which can be used for asking questions to speakers and to follow the discussions among the audience. The moderator will follow the dialogue on Slido and will pick questions to be asked to the speaker after each presentation. Questions can also be asked during the Q&A after each presentation.
To use Slido open your web browser (e.g. Safari/Google Chrome) on your smartphone.
