The Portuguese Minister of Economy, Professor Manuel Caldeira Cabral, and his delegation met with SwedenBIO, the Swedish life science industry organization, with the purpose of building B2B collaborations.
“We believe the Portuguese and Swedish life science industries are complementary in such a way that they could benefit from each other’s growth,” says Prof. Cabral. “Globally speaking, Europe is still a region. Growing together makes us more visible on the international life science scene. Portugal provides an entry point to South American markets as well as a strong pool of talent.”
From SwedenBIO´s side, the purpose of the Portuguese delegation fits well into the organization’s mission, it states.
“We are continuously working to connect the Swedish ecosystem of life science internationally, with potential clients, partners, investors and research collaborations,” says Dr. Jonas Ekstrand, Director General of SwedenBIO. “We are happy to look into further collaboration possibilities, starting with raising awareness on business opportunities and building on existing networking platforms. Such as the Web Summit in Portugal and the Nordic Life Science Days.”
