The Leading laboratory for new health solutions

As an international hub for life sciences, Denmark offers foreign companies a respected international health laboratory with a politically favourable climate towards life science, a world-class research environment, a highly skilled labour pool, and a strong, ambitious, and innovative life science cluster.

Denmark is home to one of the strongest life science clusters in the world, and is world-renowned for its strengths within Pharma & BioTech, MedTech and Digital Health. The key to that reputation is the close interplay between public and private partners across science, education and regulatory affairs.

The life science industry is a cornerstone of the Danish economy. The industry is research-intensive, sustainable, innovative, highly productive and growing – internationally as well as at home. It includes both large global companies and very new startups. And most importantly, it stands on a foundation of top-class health research, willingness to invest, technological know-how and, not least, skilled employees. This is why the life science industry is one of Denmark's biggest export successes, plus attracts many strong industry players.
