More coffee brings more good

It’s meetings between people that create the dynamic at Medicon Village Science Park. Our park is home to researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs – in all some 1600 of them in 120 companies and organisations – and all working in life science. A home where a chance encounter at the coffee machine may lead to an exchange of ideas, a proposal to work together or even a new company.

A walk through the village

We use the term ‘Village’ both as a metaphor and to reinforce the community that is  Medicon Village Science Park. It’s all about proximity and bringing together diverse areas of life science. People may have  various specialities and different jobs but they all have life science as a common denominator. We believe that the greater the interaction between the various players, the more likely we are to see meaningful development and growth.

Live here

All the companies and organisations here are also members of Medicon Village. And just like any other membership, being part of our group has a number of benefits. Members not only share experiences and buy services off one another, they can also rent lab space, lab equipment and conference rooms, and participate in the many events that are held here.

Cooperation

The dynamism of Medicon Village comes from the fact that experts from different types of companies have the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and work together. The various organisations fit into one of the three legs of what is known as the Triple Helix: University, Government (Public Sector) and Industry. We also welcome non-profit and business organisations so long as they have a connection with life science.

Growth

Medicon Village encapsualtes the entire life science world – from prevention and diagnostics to treatment and care. We focus on creating a value chain from concept to support and development of a finished product or service. Our unique ecosystem gives small companies the advantages of the big ones. It gives them the chance to grow in a way that they may only have dreamed of.
