Leaving on a Jet Plane

‘Leaving on a jet plane’ is the title of one of John Denver’s greatest hits. However, it is also what an increasing number of pharmaceutical products do every day, when the results of Medicon Valley based R&D, commercialisation, and manufacturing are sent out to make a difference worldwide.

The binational Danish-Swedish life sciences cluster Medicon Valley consists of the Region Zealand, the Danish Capital Region, and the Swedish region Skåne. It is not only host to cutting-edge public and private life sciences R&D in, for instance, oncology, dermatology, diabetes, fertility, and CNS-related diseases, but also the world’s largest insulin manufacturing site owned by Novo Nordisk and located in the Danish city of Kalundborg. Additionally, Medicon Valley-based companies such as LEO Pharma, Baxter, Coloplast, Ferring, and Lundbeck have substantial local production and/or R&D facilities; this makes Copenhagen Airport a central logistics hub and, since it serves Denmark and South Sweden alike, the most important airport in the Nordics from a life sciences perspective.
