All about the future
At Medicon Village, it’s all about the future. About the products which don’t exist today. About methodologies and services still under development. About insights and opportunities. That’s what makes life science so vibrant. It’s what drives the 2800 people at Medicon Village where we are creating the opportunities for growth and progress.
Think of Medicon Village as a catalyst for the research and development that is going on here. We are constantly refining our ecosystem so that more people can meet and interact and turn concepts into a new company or a new product.
An infrastructure continuously growing
Medicon Village has grown rapidly. There are now more than 2800 people working here in 180 different organisations and companies. We are in principle full. But the desire for researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs to work in this cross-border way is as strong as ever. That’s why we are planning to expand. We’ll be adding not just more offices and research facilities but also accommodation, open spaces, roads and more – in other words a completely new infrastructure.
A sustainable energy solution with the first ectogrid™ in the world built at Medicon Village
The ectogrid™ is effectively utilizing the excess energy arising at Medicon Village, and during the fall of 2020 more than 50% of the buildings are connected leading to a steady decrease in energy. At the end of 2021 the total energy need should be reduced by 50% and when the entire village is connected there will be an 80% reduction in energy. The carbon footprint is reduced by 60% compared to traditional district heating solutions.
