Denmark recently launched an ambitious growth strategy on life science. Denmark is already characterized as a nation with a strong life science sector. USA is a key player for Denmark in this connection and Texas holds an abundance of opportunities. Texas is thereby a hidden gem for the Danish life science companies.
