The life science industry in Denmark has developed into one of the strongest clusters in Europe. With excellent interplay between public and private partners and a unique test environment, Denmark turns clinical research into business. For many years, Denmark has constituted an international health laboratory, attracting international businesses and researchers.

Reasons include the presence of several different types of healthcare industries, a long-standing tradition for efficient public-private partnerships, plus a keen political focus on creating framework conditions conducive to research and business development in healthcare and welfare.

Over the past five decades, the Indian life sciences sector has witnessed exponential growth both in terms of broadening of scope and deepening of capabilities across the industry value chain. One of the key challenges the sector faces is the need for a strong collaboration between life science and healthcare companies not just on products but also on solutions to help meet the demand-supply mismatch. The need of the hour is for the product-push models to be complemented with service-oriented models that place a high priority on patients’ interests.
