Life Science | Ecosystem: Gothenburg – Philadelphia

October 21 @ 12:00 pm

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. The circa hour long event will give you insight on the science ecosystems of Philadelphia and Gothenburg respectively. Ranging from topics like logistics to IT to marketing, the in-depth webinars will hopefully spark your interest in the possibility of collaboration, the exchange of competence, as well as partnership. We have gathered an exciting line-up of speakers from different technical fields covering a wide variety of expertise.




Among the speakers from Gothenburg is Magnus Björsne, CEO at AstraZeneca BioVentureHub. 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.
