Life sciences – enabling tomorrow’s healthcare solutions

The material is under revision during 2022.

What makes Sweden’s life sciences story so successful, both historically and as we look towards the future?

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’s dedication to the health of its citizens is evident, as the country 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, both historically and as we look towards the future? What are the mutual global challenges? Through access to data and open collaboration for common solutions, how can we face the future?

This toolkit is linked to the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership programmes. Other toolkits linked to these programmes are:

Fashion revolution – the future of textiles
The smart city – meeting the urban challenge
Smart Industry – unlocking the potential
Transforming transportation – the road to sustainable mobility (toolkit not in use since October 2021)
