THINGS TO DO IN COPENHAGEN
Copenhagen is Denmark’s capital with an urban population of about 1.2 million people and is a major center for science, medicine and business.
One of the medical highlights in the city is the Medical Museion, which is a combined museum and research unit at the University of Copenhagen. The museum has one of the biggest and richest historical collections of medical artefacts in Europe. The collections contain between 150,000 and 250,000 items as well as a large image bank, document archive and historical book collection.
Copenhagen also has many companies and institutions with a focus on research and development within the biotechnology and life science sectors. The biotechnology and life science cluster in Copenhagen and the rest of the Øresund Region is one of the strongest in Europe and known as Medicon Valley. It is a collaborative venture supported by both Denmark and Sweden that aims to strengthen the region's position and to promote cooperation between companies and academia.
