This week, the Nordic region’s largest conference for the international life science industry, is taking place in Malmö. The more than 1,300 participants took part in activities such as seminars, workshops, exhibitions and one-to-one meetings. 

– It’s the best Nordic Life Science Days conference so far. It’s a great meeting point for both startups and industri, with more or less all big pharma companies globally represented. And also investment opportunities for startups, says Jörgen Gustafsson, business advisor at Innovation Skåne, specializing in life science and healthtech.

The Director of HealthTech Nordic, Marianne Larsson, participated in the seminar “Cross Fertilization between pharma and health tech startups – where will it take us?” together with startup members Coala Life and Lytics
