Partnership for life 2018
LMI and partners welcome you to join this day where we will present the Norwegian life science ecosystem, discuss the importance of collaboration, look at global success stories and challenge Norwegian decision and policy makers on their ambition and execution.
Innovation and value creation within the life sciences demands excellence in science, quality healthcare services with capacity and a culture for public-private research projects, high amount of investments, skilled business development and brilliant people.
An ecosystem that embraces this, is the key to achieve high competitiveness and results in benefits for patients, society and businesses.
