2020 has been a very unusual year due to the covid-19 pandemic which is still affecting our day-to-day lives. Both in our private and in our business sphere, we have had to accept limited socializing, travel bans, virtual conferences, meetings etc.
The situation has also deeply affected DANISH BIO – DANSK BIOTEK in the sense that we have had to cancel our scheduled Annual Members’ Meeting in May, several planned Biotek Salons and 2 additional members’ meetings this autumn. Unfortunately, it seems that we will not be able to conduct any large events for our members for the rest of 2020. And today we had to cancel the planned Biotek Salon on IP strategies for the same reason.
We are very sorry about this, as the members’ meetings provide such a nice forum for everybody to network with industry colleagues, collaborators and other business partners whilst getting inspiration and learning new practice from a variety of national and international speakers, politicians and industry experts. We value meeting all of you, hearing your feedback and getting your input for new events in connection with our members’ meetings.
Meanwhile, rest assured that DANISH BIO – DANSK BIOTEK has not been inactive this year at all. Covid-19 has given the Chairman and our board plenty of time to focus on our organisation’s political strategy. We have participated in several meetings with various members of the political parties at Christiansborg in a pursuit to promote life science to our politicians. We have played an important role in the establishment of the new Genstartsteams and have been able to weigh in on both short- and long-term political proposals related to our industry. Our main target continues to be getting life science and biotech on the political agenda in order to improve conditions and financial opportunities for our industry and for new and existing entrepreneurs.
50% discount on 2021 membership fee!
To compensate for the low activity level with regards to events and meetings in 2020, the board of directors has decided to offer a 50% reduction on the 2021 membership fee for current members. The fee is due to be renewed at the beginning of the new year. We know that covid-19 has put substantial financial burdens on many of our members, and we want to be as little a burden as possible.
This change will have to be formally approved at an Extraordinary General Meeting to be conducted 8 October 2020. Please find Notice to Convene as well as Power of Attorney below and attached.
Kindly note that the reduced fee only applies to 2021 – hopefully, we’ll soon be back to normal activity.
Stay safe and sane out there,
The board of DANISH BIO – DANSK BIOTEK

DANISH BIO – DANSK BIOTEK
(CVR no. 28 43 65 72)
Notice is hereby given to Extraordinary General Meeting of DANISH BIO – DANSK BIOTEK to be held on
Thursday 8 October 2020, at 10:00 (CET)
at Plesner Advokatpartnerselskab
Amerika Plads 37, 2100 København Ø
Due to the outbreak of covid-19, all members are urged to give power of attorney and not to attend the general meeting in person.
The agenda is as follows:
a) Election of chairman of the General Meeting
b) Proposal to give all members 50% discount on the membership fee for 2021
Re a) – Election of chairman of the extraordinary general meeting
Election of Chairman of the General Meeting.
Re b) – Proposal to give all members 50% discount on the membership fee for 2021
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Board proposes to give all current members 50% discount on the membership fee for 2021, as it has not been possible to conduct the usual number of events in 2020. The discount is solitary and only for the membership fee of 2021, thus the membership fee for other years is not affected by this proposal.
