The new program include project-based courses, where students meets potential customers from academia, healthcare and industry. Current work was sent in to a world conference for the CDIO-framework. The project finalized by a national conference regarding future needs within the life science sector.

Planned approach and implementation

Increased understanding was reached by both sides through mobility between industry and academia. Anna spent time in three of Astra Zeneca´s facilities (Mölndal, Södertälje and Cambridge).
