The Danish Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, Helge Sander, yesterday inaugurated Copenhagen University's new DKK 700 m (USD 133 m) Biocentre. The aim is to create an environment which lifts Danish research internationally and enable cross-disciplinary dialogue between the Danish biotech and pharmaceutical industry.
 
The new biocentre will comprise a number of research units including the Bartholin Institute and the Finsen Laboratory, the Biotech Research and Innovation Centre, the Department of Molecular Biology and parts of the Faculty of Health Sciences. The plan is to supplement the centre with a science park for start-up companies in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry.
 
Lene Lange, head of the Department of Molecular Biology says: "Establishing basic research, clinical research, applied research and teaching in the same building will help us create the food chain which can supply results to industry. Such environments will provide direct interaction between new biotech companies, well-established companies in the pharma and biotech industry and research groups."
 
The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.
