Biopeople is welcomed as Danish liaison office for ScanBalt BioRegion at a ceremony in Copenhagen.
Biopeople is part of the permanent Danish infrastructure for innovation established and co-funded by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation and the Danish Council for Technology and Innovation. Biopeople embraces universities, research organisations, and hospitals, the Danish Medicines Agency, industry associations as well as pharma, medtech, medical device, food and biotech companies.
Key objectives of the liaison office are to promote the attraction of EU and other investments to regional Danish hubs via collaborations in ScanBalt BioRegion and to strengthen the awareness of Danish competencies and resources around the Baltic Sea. Per Spindler, Director of Biopeople says “With the approval of the EU Baltic Sea Region strategy in 2009 it is increasingly important to collaborate with our neighbours as support to our other national and international efforts. We regard this as an important service to our stakeholders and Denmark needs to play an active role in the shapening of the first EU macro-region, the Baltic Sea Region”. Wolfgang Blank, Chairman of ScanBalt and CEO of BioCon Valley ads “We are happy for the possibility to further integrate Danish competencies into various ScanBalt activities and projects like the EU Baltic Sea Region strategy’s flagship project ScanBalt Health Region. ScanBalt BioRegion is today regarded as a leading example of regional collaboration in the EU and this is another step forward”.
ScanBalt BioRegion – Life Sciences on Top of Europe - is the leading network of clusters, universities, companies and public authorities working within Life sciences and Health to promote the Baltic Sea or Nordic-Baltic Region as a globally competitive green valley and health region.
