We believe that interdisciplinary exchange is a key driver in creating growth. Being an ecosystem we want to speed the translation of promising new life science discoveries “from idea to market.” Also, our aim is to secure that needs and requirements from the market is transformed into ideas for researchers and innovators, i.e “from market needs to innovation”. Medicon Village is a venue for exchange of ideas and opinions, hosting a large number of life science seminars and events.
At Medicon Village, small companies benefit from the advantages ordinarily reserved for large companies – there are laboratories such as cell labs and advanced instrumentation labs, that make it possible for a start-up company in life sciences to launch their business without costly investments in premises and instruments. This forms the conditions for the development of new medical devices and diagnostics to drugs. From idea to commercial product. There are more than 1000 instruments available to hire, and Medicon Village has 40,000 m2 of laboratory buildings.
