Denmark's Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (KVL) yesterday put forward to the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation the idea of creating a world leading life science university in Denmark by merging KVL with the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences, the Danish Institute for Food and Veterinary Research, the Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences and either the University of Copenhagen or the Technical University of Denmark.

Erik Bonnerup, chairman of the board of KVL says: "Our vision with a life science university is to make Denmark an international front runner in efforts to achieve a healthier and more sustainable future. The vision can be fulfilled because we now can bring together some of the strongest competencies in fields such as biology, biotechnology, environment, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, food, health and nutrition."

KVL's Rector Per Holten-Andersen sees great potential in establishing a life science university in Denmark: "A Danish life science university can help Denmark position itself internationally and attract the best research scientists and students. Our cross-disciplinary research and knowledge sharing will benefit the food and pharmaceutical industry and at the same time open up new areas." The news was reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
