The ESHG 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the first ESHG Conference which took place in Copenhagen in 1967. In commemoration of this event, we have chosen the Bella Center in Denmark’s capital as the venue for our next meeting.
Denmark is not only renowned for the Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen and Niels Bohr, but also for Danish Design and the “New Nordic Cuisine”. Landing at Copenhagen airport, you will have a wonderful view of “The Bridge” connecting Denmark and Sweden. Copenhagen is one of the most vivid cities in northern Europe, although it is also referred to as Northern Europe’s cosiest capital; a city full of street cafés, design shops and some of the best restaurants in Scandinavia. From the winding streets of the beautiful old town and the grand royal palaces to the city’s cutting-edge buildings and attractions, Copenhagen is a great mix of the old and the new world. Copenhagen is also known for being an international hub for science. It is number one in Europe in terms of clinical trials per capita and number two in the world for developing biotechnology. In fact, COBIS, the Copenhagen Bio Science Park, was named the world’s best biotech incubator in 2011. Furthermore, the newly built Copenhagen Science City with its Niels Bohr Building are signifi cant investments of the Danish government to enhance science and to attract the world’s best scientists.
