Copenhagen is world-renowned for its strong pharmaceutical, biotech, and health tech corporations, well-established in the region. Just in 2020, the Life Science industry in Denmark stood for 22% of all exports in the country. That is not a coincidence but rather a clear Danish policy.

Denmark is a European leader in R&D spending and the number of clinical trials per capita. Thanks to the single-point-of-entry system, drug trial applications are processed quickly, and the approval rate of all drug trial applications is as high as 95%.

That is not all. Establishing a Life Science company in Copenhagen means easy access to the south of Sweden and the Danish-Swedish Life Science cluster – Medicon Valley. With more than 65,000 Life Science professionals, 9 universities, and top industry companies – Medicon Valley is where Life Science breakthroughs happen. Read more about it here.
