MVA Annual Summit 2022

Medicon Valley Alliance 25 years and beyond – Becoming EU´s strongest life science region

Over the last 25 years, the Medicon Valley region has grown to become one of Europe’s leading life science regions. With 65,000 life science jobs, 9 universities and 9 life science parks, incubators and accelerators across the region, it is drawing attention, talent, research and investment from all over the world.

Based on Medicon Valley Alliance’s 25 years of experience with innovative Danish-Swedish life science collaboration and private public partnerships, what would it take to raise the bar even further and solidify Medicon Valley as the European Union’s strongest life science region?

This key question and more will be addressed at the MVA Annual Summit 2022, where we invite local and international key stakeholders to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Danish-Swedish life science cluster organisation, Medicon Valley Alliance.

 

Date: Monday November 7th 2022
Time: 10:00 – 17:30
Venue: Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport, Ellehammersvej 20, 2770 Kastrup, Denmark
