Swedish American Life Science Summit (SALSS) is a high-profile, by-invitation-only Life Science network and summit traditionally held annually in Stockholm in end-August. It aims to bring together academia, industry and financing, to enhance commercialisation of research, innovation, entrepreneurship and scaling of viable Life Science companies. SALSS provides fantastic opportunities to network with top scientists, executives, and politicians within Life Science and to get in touch with key individuals and driven entrepreneurs acting in the Life Science universe.
For the first time this year, SALSS will be hosting two separate events–SALSS Goes to Washington and SALSS 2018 ALL ABOUT BRAINS–in Washington, D.C. and Stockholm respectively.
SALSS Goes to Washington
This year exclusively, SALSS will be organising an extraordinary investment opportunity under the brand “SALSS Goes to Washington” on April 11-12 at the House of Sweden in Washington, D.C. Through a unique and tailored approach to investments in Life Science, it aims to connect premium companies with the most suitable investors and strategic partners in the US and to generate fruitful deals to enhance the future of commercialisation and growth of innovative, promising companies. SALSS Goes to Washington is specially designed for companies that are looking to establish or grow in the US markets and/or looking for US financing.
The keynote speaker at the event is none other than Congresswoman Diana DeGette, who was one of the initiators of the 21st Century Cures Act and is also a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce under which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was established. The summit will conclude on the evening of April 12 as the most prominent speakers, company representatives and special guests are invited to a Gala Dinner at the Residence of the Ambassador of Sweden to the US.
SALSS 2018 ALL ABOUT BRAINS
In addition to the event in Washington, D.C., SALSS will also be hosting its traditional annual event in Stockholm. Under the brand “SALSS 2018 ALL ABOUT BRAINS”, which will take place on August 22-24 in Stockholm, it will be mainly dedicated to dementia and neuro-medicine and diagnostics. SALSS 2018 ALL ABOUT BRAINS will also feature high-profile speakers from science, clinical research and industries within Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and more, as well as various politicians. The commercial and more health tech-centred theme will focus on Artifical Intelligence and Medical Robotics. The programme is still currently under development and will be shared at a later date.
