The Swedish life science industry includes 1 500 companies within pharma, biotech and medtech. Around 800 of them are engaged in research and development programs in Sweden (Vinnova Analysis 2014:13). Since Sweden is a small country with a very limited home market, companies typically plan for the global market from day one. Thus, a natural part of the business and tradition is to actively seek international collaborations, licensing and financing in order to broaden the critical mass and securing a global reach.
