Nansen Neuroscience Network "Fully Support" NOR-OPENSCREEN

Written on .


The Nansen Neuroscience Network (NNN) fully support the establishment of NOR-OPENSCREEN. Leif Rune Skymoen (CEO) has stated that "further strengthening Norwegian Competency and infrastructure" would give "innovative biomedicine companies an advantage in develop(ing) neuroscience pharmaceuticals of the future" as well as "shorten the time to market for innovative products." Neuroscience is considered one of the strongest areas of Norwegian research, which was highlighted by the recent Nobel Prize award to May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser. The support of NNN to NOR-OPENSCREEN shows how this project can strengthen our existing capabilities within the country.
