Bringing the whole ecosystem together
SwedenBIO is the national trade organization for life sciences in Sweden.
Our member companies develop biotechnology, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and medical devices or are experts in business development, IP and law, among others. We also bring together financiers, incubators, science parks, regional investment promoters and many more.
What our members have in common is that they are instrumental in developing medical innovations that improve human health in Sweden and the world, whether they are individual entrepreneurs or large global life science companies.
SwedenBIO is a non-profit membership organization. The highest decision-making body is thegeneral assembly, which also appoints the organization’sboard of directors. The daily operations are run by asecretariatlocated in central Stockholm.
SwedenBIO was founded in 2002 by the CEOs of seven leading Swedish life science companies: Amersham Biosciences (now Cytiva), Active Biotech, Biovitrum (now SOBI), KaroBIO, Medivir, Melacure Therapeutics and Pharmacia Diagnostics (now Thermo Fisher).
We own and organize the Nordic partnering conference Nordic Life Science Days, which first took place in 2013.
SwedenBIO’s vision is an internationally competitive life science sector in Sweden and a stronger Nordic cooperation to make the Nordic region visible as a life science region in the world.
In global competition, Sweden needs to offer attractive conditions for life science companies to grow and develop here, as well as for international companies to decide to locate operations in our country.
Our goals for the business are that SwedenBIO will:
- Building strong business networks.
- Disseminating facts and knowledge.
- Give the industry a strong voice in the public debate.
