Copenhagen Capacity Launches Global Greater Copenhagen Microbiome Campaign

Copenhagen Capacity in partnership with Invest in Skåne have launched a campaign to promote and create international awareness of Greater Copenhagen’s strongholds within the microbiome. The goal is to attract and retain international investments and companies to Greater Copenhagen to strengthen and build the life science cluster and position the region as a global center for microbiome research.

Nordic centre of life science
Greater Copenhagen is the metropolitan region that covers eastern Denmark and the southernmost part of Sweden. The region is home to Medicon Valley, which is the leading life science cluster in the Nordics. Medicon Valley brings together top universities, hospitals, global R&D-based pharma companies, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, providing a strong triple helix ecosystem.

Multi-disciplinary microbiome hub
Greater Copenhagen’s ecosystem includes 80+ companies, organisations, and institutions working actively within the field of the microbiome. The region’s industry, academia and clinical environments collaborate across disciplines to bridge basic and applied science, and to establish connections and generate knowledge. All efforts have the ultimate purpose of enabling microbiome-based innovations for the benefit of health and the environment.

To discover why the Greater Copenhagen region is a growing hub for microbiome research and how the framework conditions for establishing a research facility here are among the best in the world, visit the Greater Copenhagen Microbiome landing page here.
