Life Science - one of five prioritized clusters in West Sweden
The field of life science covers a large number of challenges from the regional to the global level, including possible solutions. There is a focus on health and healthcare, and problems for example related to an aging population, antibiotic resistance, and pandemics. West Sweden´s public actors have expressed a clear emphasis on life science for example by commissioning former Prime Minister Ingvar Carlsson to assess what needs to and can be done to develop the life science sector.
Five Clusters is a collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology, The City of Gothenburg, University of Gothenburg, Region Västra Götaland and West Sweden Chamber of Commerce.
The text in the folder describes five strong clusters in West Sweden that have been identified jointly by leading representatives from the academia and the public and private sector. The clusters each have a long tradition, and they are all facing some exciting challenges.
The five clusters are
- Urban future
- The marine environment and the maritime sector
- Transport solutions
- Green chemistry and bio based products
- Life Science
