Sunday afternoon we left with fifty participants for our 4-day visit to the Medtech and Healthcare topregion in Scandinavia, Medicon Valley. We arrived in First Hotel Sankt Petri in Copenhagen, which was awarded the best business hotel in Scandinavia in 2010. There we received an introduction to Medicon Valley from our local co-organizers Invest in Skåne and Biopeople who put a lot of effort in this visit. They gave an inspiring talk about how Medicon Valley became a top life sciences cluster. Afterwards, we were welcomed at our Belgian Ambassy in Copenhagen by the Belgian AmbassadorJean-François Branders.
