AmCham's events at Folkemødet

Panel Debate: Life Science – The American Way

AmCham Denmark, in partnership with Lif, is hosting a debate on the U.S. life science industry seen from a Danish perspective. The life science industry’s research activities in the U.S. continue to lead the world, so what can we in Denmark learn from this?

With the U.S. being Denmark’s largest trading partner outside of the EU, we look at the current political tendencies in U.S. with the new Trump administration and discuss the state of the transatlantic relationship, the free trade agenda and the future of life science on both sides of the Atlantic.

We also invite two representatives from U.S. life science companies to share their perspectives on the Danish framework conditions within the industry – and how to strengthen them in the future.

Date: June 16, 2017
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
Venue:  Rud Pedersen tent (Slægtsgården, L8)

Panelists include: Chargés d'Affaires Laura Lochman (U.S. Embassy); Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Mogens Lykketoft; Member of Parliament Jan E. Jørgensen (V); Managing Director Dahlia Gayed (MSD); Country Manager Henriette Rosenquist (Pfizer); Country Manager Anders Thelborg (Bristol-Myers Squibb) and U.S. expert Mads Fuglede
