A pipeline of opportunities await you
This geographically tight knit life science cluster, with its advanced infrastructure and easy access, makes it ideal for both national and international projects. We have several on-going projects creating considerable international interest, some of which you can read more about below.
PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
BrainStem, the Stem Cell Center of Excellence in Neurology, will conduct research in neurodegenerative diseases over a six year period running from 2015 until 2020. The aim is to establish a Stem Cell Center of Excellence in neurology (BrainStem) across academia and industry, starting in Copenhagen. The key objective of BrainStem is to improve therapy and diagnostics of AD, FTD, and PD by development and application of patient-specific iPSC-derived in vitro and in vivo models.
Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster
Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster (CHC) is a platform for connecting initiatives and delivering new healthtech solutions that address the future health challenges of the Copenhagen region’s growing population.
Copenhagen Spin-outs is a collaboration between the academic research environment and industry focusing on innovation and commercialisation of biotech research in the capital region area. The project focuses on strengthening the collaboration between universities, research parks and investors to speed up the effort to promote the good ideas from the research institutions and turn them into sustainable biotech companies.
HealthTech Nordic represents a fast-growing community of 275+ high potential Nordic startups, offering a variety of empowering healthtech solutions. The aim is to connect the dots between innovative solutions, healthcare and a global market. The HealthTech Nordic project is run by six partners in the Nordics, including Invest in Skåne, Innovation Skåne, and SmiLe Incubator.
The Swedish Innovation Programme for life science against non-communicable diseases focuses on accelerating innovation and collaborative processes in life science in Sweden, from idea to societal benefit.
