Digitally Tue 19 Sep 2023 at 13:00-14:00

Life science is a strongly growing sector in Sweden, but the regrowth of skills points in a different direction. This is shown in Vinnova's first statistical report on the Swedish life science companies. Welcome to the webcast seminar where, together with guests from the industry, we explore the challenges and how we can best ensure the supply of skills for the future.
