The Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Greater Copenhagen Authority (HUR) have entered an agreement with three science parks to build and run a biotech science park in Copenhagen

The Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Greater Copenhagen Authority (HUR) have entered an agreement with Symbion Science Park, Science Park Aarhus and Scion-DTU to build and run a biotech science park in the Danish capital, Copenhagen Bio Science Park. It will be placed next to Copenhagen BioCenter which is currently under construction.

Preben Pamsgaard, managing director of Scion-DTU comments: "We have already today one of northern Europe's strongest research clusters in biotech with more than 400 research scientists. The new science park will become a growth house where ideas, talent and companies can be developed and help us to maintain and develop a world-class research and entrepreneurial environment. And with the competencies of the three science parks specialising in biotech, we have created the foundation for success."

Copenhagen Bio Science Park is expected to open its doors in 2008. Initially it will have space for up to 50 companies. The project is estimated to cost around DKK 100 m (USD 16 m). The news was reported by national daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten and on the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation website.
