The Swedish-American Life Science Summit
The Swedish-American Life Science Summit (SALSS) is a by-invitation-only conference bringing together some of the most renowned Life Science executives, scientists, entrepreneurs and investors. The aim is to build strategic and collaborative relationships between academia, industry and fundings, thus enhancing Life Science business.
During three days in late August in Stockholm the organizers present an intense and exclusive program featuring insights from top-notch speakers, high-level panel discussions, a limited number of presentations by successful and promising companies, as well as a small and thoughtfully matched exhibit of specially selected start-up companies operating within Life Science. The Summit offers plenty of opportunity to one-to-one meetings and networking. Specifically, participants are encouraged to take part in the exclusive off-program social events, implying unique advantages to build sustainable relationships and long-term friendships.
SALSS was founded in 2005 as an initiative to increase the level of cross-border business between one of the largest market in the world, the United States, and one of the most important Life Science industry centers in Europe, Sweden. Over the years the Summit has taken on an increasingly global nature, making it a true reflection of the Life Science industry today. The team behind the event have the hope and ambition that SALSS will continue serving to strengthen Life Science entrepreneurship, partnership and friendship.

Ehnbom, and the Swedish Consul General, Leif Pagrotsky, gathered a select few of SALSS Best Friends at the beautiful 600 Park Avenue, to discuss the future of SALSS in the reshaping of the Life Science universe. To truly light up the star-spangled sky that night, the lucky guests had the delight to listen to one of the brightest shining stars of them all, Dr. Robert Langer, talking about how technology is reinventing our industry.
