Numerous pharma and medico companies, representatives from the regions, Invest in Denmark as well as personnel from various NEXT Centers attended the meeting.
Lise Warming, Country Medical Head, Novartis, says about the collaboration: “The collaboration with NEXT gives Novartis new opportunities to attract additional clinical research to Denmark. NEXT offers a structure providing the potential for an effective and constructive collaboration with skilled and dedicated researchers and clinicians in order to develop new medicine. Already today, Novartis can see an effect both on increased research activities and on important global competition parametres such as speed and flexibility. It is our impression that NEXT has given clinicians increased opportunities to engage in relevant research projects”.
