Nordic Life Science Days (NLS days) is the largest Nordic partnering conference dedicated to the life science industry. Since its inception in 2013, the event has nurtured a community of people from the world of life science, and created a unique place to do business in an informal atmosphere, combined with an organised approach to meeting highly relevant people.
NLS Days 2018 took place 10-12 September at Stockholm Waterfront. View the full programme here.
EATRIS' (European Infrastructure for Translational Medicine) objective of attending NLS Days was to connect with private companies, including startups, SMEs and big pharma, in order to provide them academic expertise in the frame of EATRIS matchmaking services.
So far, Nordic countries have produced a lot of matchmaking requests, and NLS Days has been instrumental in generating these requests. This year's event provided some great opportunities for networking, with many new contacts made.
