Biopeople is Denmark's Life Science Cluster
Biopeople is Denmark's Life Science Cluster located at the University of Copenhagen. We are part of the Danish infrastructure for innovation - established and co-funded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science (innovationsnetværk).
We are a neutral catalyst for collaboration between companies and public research, and our strategic priority is to support the paradigm shift in the health care sector, implying a strengthened focus on biomarkers, companion diagnostics, precision / personalized medicine, regulatory science, and stakeholder involvement, incl. patient and investor communities.
Our priorities are implemented through initiatives and programmes that facilitate companies and entrepreneurs becoming part of the international industry value chain, and through programmes that enhance public-privat and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
