Danish Life Science Cluster represented in important European bio-collaboration

Karen Lindegaard from Danish Life Science Cluster has just been elected to the board of the European Network for Life Science Clusters and Regional Ecosystems CEBR – and is an important step in the cluster’s European collaboration.

The Danish cluster for life science will have an important place in future collaborations in the biotech area.

Karen Lindegaard, International Programme Manager, Danish Life Science Cluster, has been elected as one of two new members of CEBR’s Board of Directors. CEBR stands for Council of European BioRegions.

Karen Lindegaard’s new role in CEBR is an important endorsement of her many years of work in the European cluster ecosystem within life science:

“I am very honoured to be elected as a member of the CEBR Board and look forward to working with the other European cluster members on further operationalisation of this strong network. For Danish Life Science Cluster, this means that we as a Danish cluster will have a strengthened and important role in relation to European collaboration in life science – for the benefit of our members and partners.

40 representatives from the European member organisations of the Council of European BioRegions (CEBR) gathered in Paris on 14-15 May 2024 for the annual meeting and board election.
