Meet the companies that could change the field of infectious disease

I want to spread the word about the vibrant, competent and well-synchronized life science environment that we offer. At Uppsala BIO we work for growth of the life science sector, support existing companies and I´m eager to attract new investments and establishments to the region. My objective at NLSDays is to meet companies and institutions that can support our endeavor.”

Margaretha Gadnell, Director, Life Science Cluster Development, Uppsala BIO

My objective at NLSDays is to promote our strong project portfolio and facilitate connections between projects and industrial partners.  I see that the small startup companies benefit a lot from the conference, both in terms of getting new contacts and in “learning how it works” as well as getting the first discussion for a tentative collaboration. We at Uppsala BIO support them with this and give constructive feedback and visibility ahead of the conference.”

Anna Ridderstad Wollberg, project manager Industrial Partnership and Swelife, Uppsala BIO

Our goal for the program Industrial Partnership at NLSDays is to connect small companies with large industrial actors/venture capital in order to facilitate partnerships with early stage projects from our region. Within our program BIO-X Industry we also seek to build long-term relationships with industrial actors, in order to increase their activities in our region.”
