We asked the question: What’s your takeaway from Park Annual?

2 October, 2018

The Park Annual conference continues to grow and develop each year, but the basic concept remains the same. On a Thursday at the end of September, the doors open for the life science event that gathers the industry to exchange knowledge, gain new insights and make new contacts.

This year’s theme A brand New world offered presentations about the vision & future of the life science industry, artificial intelligence & new technology, as well as scale-up & internationalisation. All the presentations and interviews conducted by our media partner, MedTech Magazine, will soon be available on www.sahlgrenskasciencepark.se.

With 50 booked one-to-one meetings, over 500 participants and a fully booked exhibition hall, the buzz and energy was high from the start. We asked some participants: What’s your takeaway from Park Annual?

“The general strategy discussions. I was inspired by Jenni Nordborg and her work with the life science strategy. It’s much needed.” David Oscarsson, MediCase.

“Most interesting for me was Vitrolife – with their different ways from idea to product. It was very cool to see so many different paths.” Fredrik Hedberg, Qing.

“Networking within the important area of material law, which is also important for the county council.” Lina Strand Backman, Innovation Platform.

“Networking. I participated in the first session, then I have had many good spontaneous meetings.” Jenny Almkvist, Region Västra Götaland.

“All the experience and energy. I am so inspired by all the young people who come in with humility, as well as confidence.” Björn Larsson, Abigo.
