Ongoing and delivered projects
At Uppsala BIO we support growth and competitiveness to promote a sustainable life science sector in many different ways. In close cooperation with industry, universities, healthcare and the community we identify barriers and propose solutions to exploit the opportunities and overcome obstacles.
We are always open for collaboration to strengthen the life science sector. Do you have an idea you want to discuss? Please contact us. Below you can see some of our projects shortly described. Through these projects we hope that you can get a grasp of our way of working.
