The future of Life Science and the contribution to society

The life science sector has the potential and opportunity to offer solutions to several global challenges impacting our future society. Yet, there are knots to untie. The big time-gap between research and early innovation stages to the point where the benefits truly impact lives is in average 17 years. What is the role of innovation environments and how can we truly make a difference? What are the future goals and how can Sweden become a leading Life Science nation?

The Swedish food system – how can we become more resilient and sustainable?

This session will be broken into two parts. Firstly the unexpected crisis in the global food supply chains – the consequences for Sweden. This will take an international outlook on the global food chains that Sweden depends on and insights into how the outside world affects Sweden and our food preparedness. The second part will discuss blue food – a key to sustainable food in the future. Seafood can make a substantial contribution to our future food supply. Blue food is a seafood center that brings together research and a diversity of Swedish actors to build the conditions for Swedish production of the seafood of the future.

The climate contract - From the EU level, to the national, to the municipality

Making the transition to climate-neutral and sustainable cities requires cooperation between citizens, politicians, businesses and civil servants on a scale never seen before. National, regional and local levels must work collectively in new ways, in the same direction to achieve climate-neutral cities. And we need to do it faster.

Transformation of an industrial sector

Sweden has ambitious goals regarding the transport sector. By 2030, the emissions from transports are to be 70 per cent less than in 2010. There is still quite a way to go to reach these goals, however, especially regarding heavy duty transport and logistics Sweden has made significant progress. In this session we take a closer look at flagship projects, disruptive startups and Sweden’s largest port, which is a true frontrunner within sustainable logistics.

Fashion Transformation - a paradigm shift full of possibilities! 

The fashion industry is facing a deep and comprehensive transformation along the entire value chain. The fashion industry faces a profound and comprehensive transformation along the entire value chain. New laws, increased digitalization, and changed consumer behavior are some of the factors that completely change the game rules in an industry generating a global turnover of more than 2 trillion USD, 2,000,000,000,000!

The focus of the transformation is the climate and green transition, which in turn will transform all parts of the fashion and textile value chain. We will see cross-sector collaboration in areas that require innovation, entrepreneurship and new ways of working together.

How do we address the challenges and what are the opportunities beyond today's "Fast Fashion"?
