Healthcare and Innovation

Sweden has made great progress in health care, from research and innovation to clinical practice and management. The Swedish healthcare system is ranked as one of the best in the world and provides an important foundation for life science innovation.

The foundation behind Swedish innovations is a fruitful collaboration between academia, industry and healthcare. All parties involved in the healthcare sector take an open-minded and boundary-spanning approach.

Through collaboration we can meet the needs of the health system for better and more effective equipment, medical procedures and smarter healthcare chains.

Our long track record of investing heavily in research and development has borne fruit – and is yet another reason to choose Swedish life science for business development, licensing, partnership or direct investment.
