Biogen has placed its European sales office and large production facilities in Greater Copenhagen owing to the local talent pool, the leading life science clu­ster Medicon Valley and competitive operational costs.



Direct flights throughout Europe, ease of truck deli­veries and Europe’s most flexible labour market were winning factors when major German chemical group Bayer decided to place its Nordic headquar­ters in Copenhagen.
