”People don´t buy what you do,
they buy why you do it.”
(Simon Sinek, managementkonsult, författare)
Intersections are where success happens
The quotation above is one way of looking at marketing and business. We think it describes Medicon Village pretty well in terms of our organisation and our members.
Medicon Village creates a stimulating environment for co-ideation, co-creation and co-operation with a passion for intersecting ideas with reality to benefit humanity. That’s what it’s really all about – medical advances for the good of mankind.
Creating the future in a networked environment
Everyone can help each other, share experiences and learn from each other. And this is one of the basic tenets of Medicon Village as a science park – a cluster with a concentration of competencies where the resultant synergy enables companies to develop faster than if they were working by themselves. We provide an open, innovation-rich environment that actively promotes wide-ranging cooperation between researchers and between large and small companies.
The village can be seen as a factory for the future housing the whole chain from research through innovation to commercialisation.
A holistic view
The field of life science is as broad as it is deep. Medicon Village and the 2600 colleagues in their more than 170 organisations adopt a holistic view involving every aspect of a human being – body and soul.
Medicon Village acts as both a platform and catalyst for its members but others can also contribute to and even benefit from the work that goes on here.
Medicon Village is part of a unique cluster of life science research and development capability, together with actors such as the European Spallation Source (ESS), the BioMedical Centre (BMC) at Lund University and the Max IV Laboratory.
The various organisations may differ in a number of ways. But they have one common mission, i.e. to bring about change and improve the world we live in. They are all at the very top of their scientific and entrepreneurial fields. And all realise that “together we are stronger”.
The health chain and the value chain
Medicon Village houses the entire health chain from prevention and diagnostics to treatment and care. The members are mainly active within cancer, diabetes, respiratory and lung diseases as well as inflammatory diseases.
In practical terms it spans a broad spectrum from research, innovation and commercialisation, in other words, from concept through to realisation of a product, process or service. This is the unique value chain of Medicon Village.
