Municipality of Ballerup in top 3 of leading life science municipalities in greater Copenhagen

Municipality of Ballerup in top 3 of leading life science municipalities in greater Copenhagen

It might come as no surprise that Bagsværd, home to Novo Nordisk HQ, is in the lead when it comes to number of life science employees with a total of 8900 (2015 figures). Kalundborg, home to Novo Nordisk´s manufactoring site, ranks forth with a total of 4100 employees. But in second place, you will, perhaps surprisingly, find the municipality of Ballerup, which has invested heavily  – and quite successfully – in attracting particularly life science companies. Being the hometown of among others Medicon Valley Alliance members such as LEO Pharma, Symphogen, Pfizer and another Novo Nordisk site, Ballerup actually ranks third with no less than 5700 employees. Ballerup thereby relegates Copenhagen to third place with “only” 5500 life science employees. Download the newly published “State of Medicon Valley 2017-analysis” on our webpage´s publication section here. The figures mentioned can be found at page 23-23.
