What is Cassovia Medi Valley?

Cassovia Medi Valley (CMV) is a cluster of subjects based in the Eastern Slovakia Region; it includes universities, research institutions, healthcare facilities, enterprises and regional self-government authorities. CMV's primary concern is to coordinate research, scientific, developmental and innovation activities performed by entities engaged in a regional partnership. CMV facilitates creating a new level of sustainable regional cooperation among highly successful organisations that share the vision of transforming the town of Košice and the Košice Self-Governing Region into a scientific, research and innovation area with an ambition to achieve the level of its national, European and global partners. The key idea of the cluster is to become a centre for the support and application of knowledge and information possessed by the young generation in the field of medicine, pharmacy and cosmetics.
