Danish biotech excels through collaboration

Denmark is a world frontrunner in biotech research, education and innovation

Today, Denmark is a global leader in areas such as enzymes, diabetes, CNS and cancer research. In fact, “Medicon Valley” in Denmark is the third largest commercial drug development pipeline in Europe.

A key to the success of Danish biotech is the close collaboration between universities, hospitals and companies in Denmark, known as the Danish Biotech Cluster.

"Denmark’s biotechnology cluster highlights the importance of communication between scientists in labs, researchers in industry, and clinicians in hospitals", writes PhD Rasmus Beedholm-Ebsen in the acclaimed scientific publication European Biopharmaceutical Review (EBR).
