Health Innovation West
April 29, 2021
15:00 - 16:30
Time zone: Stockholm, GMT+02:00

A range of different workstreams, reports and efforts has led us to Health Innovation West - a brand new cluster initiative aiming to put West Sweden on the global Life Science and health innovation map. 

Representatives from private and public organisations active in the Life Science sector in West Sweden have worked together during the last two years, to catalyse our position as a strong and attractive region for Life Science through increased collaboration.

Now is the time for you to get involved in the exciting journey we have ahead of us!

Health Innovation West was formed to attract international skills and expertise, stimulate cross-sector and cross-functional innovations and engage new Life Science investments in and capital to West Sweden. We will do this by catalysing collaboration projects between industry, academia and the healthcare sector, as well as serving as an attractive portal to a collective West Swedish arena for Life Science and health innovation. A number of project groups are already initiated based on concrete requests and “low-hanging fruit” in the region, and others are underway.

Join this event to learn more and find out how your organisation can benefit and get involved.

Mia Ekdahl (Sahlgrenska Science Park/Project Lead Health Innovation West) and Magnus Björsne (AstraZeneca BioVentureHub/Chairman Health Innovation West Steering Group) will be our hosts.

We’ll showcase the opportunities, strengths and challenges for Life Science in West Sweden, as well as our future working model for Health Innovation West and the efforts already ongoing in our working groups.

Erik Gatenholm (Cellink) and Kristina Lagerstedt (1928 Diagnostics) will join us to discuss the prerequisites for emerging companies to grow and prosper in West Sweden. Health Innovation West steering group members representing Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, University of Gothenburg, AstraZeneca, GoCo Health Innovation City, Sahlgrenska Science Park, Getinge, Region Västra Götaland and Business Region Göteborg will be there. We hope you’ll be there too!
