Swelife is a strategic innovation programme, funded by the Swedish Government via the Swedish innovation agency, Vinnova, and by the programme’s partners. We support collaboration within academia, industry and healthcare, with the goal to strengthen Life Science in Sweden and to improve public health.

Swelife is a facilitator. Through a long-term, national perspective our work aims to contribute to these effects:

  • The knowledge and resources within life science in Sweden are utilised nationally through collaboration and coordination.
  • Sweden offers good conditions for sustainable growth and international competitiveness in the life science sector.
  • Citizens of Sweden have access to innovative, equal and personalised healthcare.
