This year’s NLSDays will take place at Malmömässan and the aim is to have a broad Nordic participation, where all countries are well represented.
Jonas Ekstrand, Director General at SwedenBIO, the founder of the event, will be Program Director of this year’s event and he says he hopes the program will meet the needs of the future and reflect the different areas of strengths in the Nordic region.
“We will continue to develop the event in a reasonable and sustainable way and also to develop parallel activities in Europe and the U.S. For this year’s event we are working closely with Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA), and I hope that the number of Danish participants will increase. Our aim is that this event will be a platform for the Nordic life science region.”
Last year approximately 1 280 delegates representing almost 800 companies from 40 countries joined the conference.
The event will showcase a mixture of hot life science topics and will provide a great atmosphere for networking. On the agenda there will be topical super sessions, interesting seminars and company presentations, opportunities for partnering meetings and networking, and the announcement of the Nordic Stars Award.
