Membership application

SwedenBIO welcomes all companies active in the Swedish life science sector to apply to become members. Membership will be determined by SwedenBIOs Director General in agreement with the bylaws of SwedenBIO. Companies without Swedish operations are able to apply in the service company category only. Membership for non-Swedish companies will be determined based on their relevance for the Swedish life science ecosystem.


Membership in the association SwedenBIO is 300 SEK per year (not subject to VAT). In addition, there is a service fee (subject to VAT) that varies depending on the membership category. Association and service fees are decided by the general meeting.
