WELCOME

Thanks to close collaboration between academia, healthcare and business, the life sciences industry has taken a strong hold in the Gothenburg region. During this webinar you’ll get a multi-dimensional introduction of the Philadelphia and Gothenburg life science ecosystem with focus on the strengths and opportunities that each city offers.

We hope to encourage, enable and strengthen collaboration within science and industry communities in Philadelphia and Gothenburg by creating a forum for key stakeholders to identify mutually beneficial opportunities to pursue.

Recognised as one of the most unique industry incubators in the world by the Medici Group, the BioVentureHub represents a new approach to sector convergence as a means to catalyze innovation. At the heart of AstraZeneca’s R&D unit in Gothenburg, some 30 scale up companies representing the tech, pharma and ICT sectors are co-located with AstraZeneca to create a unique innovation ecosystem.
