Biopeople achieves highest quality label for clusters

Biopeople achieves highest quality label for clusters
 

European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA) has re-certified Biopeople according to the EU’s highest quality standard for clusters - the gold label. The Gold Label is a stamp of approval of the operation of the cluster in terms of structure, management, financing, strategy, objectives and services. “In 2013 Biopeople was the first life science cluster to receive the Gold Label. The labelling has secured continued improvement of structures and routines for value creation,” says Per Spindler, Director of Biopeople, and continues:”This makes us a more attractive collaboration partner in the Life Science community in Denmark and internationally.”

Recently, Biopeople co-hosted the event AGT2019, in collaboration with Rasmus Brøndum from Leymus Genomics. The Holst Auditorium was fully booked and we were presented with the latest research and knowledge within the genomic field. Here is Finn Cilius showing how easy phenotypes can be seen in dogs, which is more difficult in comparison to humans.

One of our speakers, Dr. Carika Weldon, from the Oxford Genomic Centre, offers a 30 % discount to the Bermuda Principles 4th Annual Conference 2020, for those who attended the AGT2019. There will be a special discount code and registration will open mid-June, and once this happens we will send out the information to all who attended the AGT2019.
