Vinnova has been commissioned by Sweden's Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications to develop, in partnership with affected companies, financiers and other players, a national innovation and research strategy for the biotech field. This strategy will focus on areas with the conditions for high growth and international competitive strength.
The strategy work requires different types of background documentation, one of which is this report. The work was initiated by Vinnova and conducted in partnership with players in the most important biotech regions and other official bodies.
The profiles in the report aim to clarify the structure of both the industry and of Swedish regional clusters of companies in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical technology. These profiles may be used as a basis for strategic assessment both nationally and regionally.
