Medicon Valley Alliance Annual Meeting 2021

Both Denmark and Sweden, having launched new national life science strategies, have clearly made life science a national strategic priority. But what is the potential for future Danish-Swedish life science collaboration post the COVID-19 pandemic? Where are the synergies, and how do we leverage them for the benefit of science, industry, healthcare and patients alike? How can Medicon Valley strengthen its position as the leading life science cluster of the Nordics and as a globally attractive destination for life science? These are some of the questions and discussions that will be addressed at this year´s MVA Annual Meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!

Date: Monday November 8, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 18:30
Venue: Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport, Ellehammersvej 20, 2770 Kastrup, Denmark
