Health & Life Sciences

Denmark has emerged as a world leader in life sciences and health care, and recently launched an ambitious growth strategy for life sciences. As part of this goal, Denmark sees Texas as an important partner with a similar ambitious strategic regional initiative, the Texas Medical Center (TMC) – the world’s largest medical city. Texas, known for oil and gas, holds great opportunity for Denmark to transfer knowledge and create opportunities within Danish healthcare innovation and research.

 TMC Skyline Houston

Texas is home to more than 3,900 life science and research firms. Texas Medical Center is the world's largest medical complex and also has the world's largest children's hospital as well as the world's largest cancer hospital. $1.3 bn. was invested by venture capitalists from 2008-2013 while Texas public institutions of higher education spent nearly $2.5 bn. in 2014 alone on medical and life science research. In the fall of 2015, Texas ranked third nationally for number of clinical trials while the state is home to nine medical schools and holds the second-highest number of hospitals only surpassed by California.
