Life sciences – enabling tomorrow’s healthcare solutions

What makes Sweden’s life sciences story so successful? What are the mutual global challenges? The exhibition Life sciences tells the story of how we can face the future through access to data and open collaboration for common solutions.

In recent decades there has been a fantastic development in healthcare around the world. More people than ever now survive cancer, heart attacks or strokes. Newly born babies with rare genetic diseases can now receive diagnosis and treatment so quickly that life-threatening conditions can be successfully averted.

Sweden has long focused on investment into frontline medical research and innovation, while simultaneously giving all citizens affordable access to high-quality healthcare.
But what makes Sweden’s life sciences story so successful? On our path, several factors deserve credit, such as: a strong level of collaboration, a substantial clinical infrastructure, efficient innovation hubs, an extensive system of bio-data resources, as well as a society-wide focus on prevention and health.

The exhibition is produced by the Swedish Institute with the help of researchers and other experts and was launched in 2019, and linked to to the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership programmes.
