NLSDays 2024


Join the Dutch Lounge at Nordic Life Science Days 2024

The Nordic Life Science Days (NLSDays) is the premiere venue for doing business with Nordic life science companies and where new international connections are made in the Nordics. Major industry partners as well as VCs will be present. For Life Science companies interested in exploring opportunities in the Nordics, the NLSDays offer an excellent platform to get connected with the Nordic ecosystem.

This year the NLSDays will be held in Malmö, Sweden, from September 17-19. Last year’s edition in Copenhagen attracted ±50 companies from the Netherlands. We aim is to repeat the success with a large Dutch presence and thereby increase the competitiveness of Dutch companies on the Nordic LSH market. In order to facilitate Dutch companies interested in the Nordic market, the Dutch Embassy in Sweden, Trade and Innovate NL partners, Health Valley NL and Health Holland are organizing a Dutch Lounge and collective side programme during the NLSDays.

Who should join?

We invite biotechs, medtechs, service providers, investors  and organizations from the Netherlands to join us at the NLSDays, 17-19 September 2024.

For service providers NLSDays is the premier event in the Nordics where new connections are made. The Swedish drug discovery and development pipeline includes some 350 projects and most of the work is performed by service providers. See SwedenBIOs pipeline report to find your future customers and collaborators.
For biotechs Find new investors to pitch for and many service providers to help you succeed. At NLSdays you will find major industry partners as well as VCs (see above link for collaborators).
