A sustainable and circular ownership

When entrepreneur Mats Paulsson founded Medicon Village in 2012, it was with the for the purpose formed non-profit foundation “Mats Paulsson’s foundation for research, innovation and societal development” as owner. The idea behind both the Mats Paulsson Foundations and Medicon Village is to contribute to new projects focusing on important research and innovation that benefit people’s opportunities for a better life. The sustainable ownership model is that return on capital together with surpluses from the activities within Medicon Village go back to research.
