The unique environment has led Medicon Valley companies to excel in research within a number of the most commercially attractive disease areas, such as cancer, diabetes, inflammation and neuroscience as well as diagnostics.
Another area that makes Medicon Valley a preferred choice among leading life science companies is the unique conditions for clinical trials. All Danish and Swedish citizens have equal access to free health care and medical data is tracked from birth onwards, ensuring a comprehensive patient database.
A formal network organization, Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA), is also to be found in the region. MVA is a regional Danish/Swedish member financed network organisation within the biotech and life science area. MVA has more than 255 members within biotech and medtech companies, pharma companies, all relevant university faculties and hospitals, as well as service providers and public organisations located in the Medicon Valley region.
