About Nordic POP
Nordic POP (patient oriented products) is a Nordic university consortium coordinated by the University of Copenhagen. It aims to provide the scientific foundation for the next generation pharmaceutical products - patient oriented products- by strengthening the use of interdisciplinary approaches within Nordic pharmaceutical sciences.
The project´s vision is to provide scientific foundation for the next generation pharmaceutical products.
Prescribing medicine today is based on a One Size Fits All Principle. However, there is a strong need for more personalized solutions in several critical therapy areas. Recent development within genomics and diagnostic field have enabled development of new innovative medicinal products relying on a combination of diagnostic tools and personalized dose, paving the way towards future health care system based on personalized medicines, where a new type of treatment strategies, taking into account the individual variations between patients, can be designed.
Nordic POP aims to deliver innovative patient oriented products with the use of new product design principles, novel methods for understanding of the product performance, and a paradigm shift in the manufacturing of these products
We believe, that this could be reached by the the intensive use of interdisciplinary approaches within Nordic pharmaceutical sciences. Our strategy is, thus, based on
Working together and sharing the existing research infrastructures and expertise.
Increasing mobility actions including senior scientific staff mobility and joint PhD programs between different participating units.
The key elements that Nordic POP will focus on are:
Facilitating the mobility of PhD students and senior staff in the consortium;
Publishing of the research findings in high impact scientific journals;
Securing innovation and entrepreneurship within the network;
Mentoring younger scientists and supporting the European Research Council (ERC) applications;
Assuring industrial dissemination and safeguarding the strong global position of Nordic pharmaceutical companies;
Positioning this network in an leading role in Europe within pharmaceutical sciences.
Nordic POP is an unique example of collaboration involving 10 Nordic partner universities and 5 affiliated Baltic universities. Besides, 4 partners from an industrial sector are involved, playing a key role as Scientific Advisory Board.
