8 projects have been granted more than SEK 34 million by Swelife

Eight projects aiming to improve health have been granted just over SEK 34 million by Swelife, the strategic innovation programme for life science.

As the call for applications was aimed solely at projects that have previously received grants from Swelife – so-called stage one projects – only a limited number were eligible to apply. Despite this, 22 applications were submitted to the assessment group.

Coordinators and grant recipients of these stage one projects are to be a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) according to the EU’s rules, an academic party with an ambition to start a company, or a healthcare enterprise.

The aim of this call for applications is to strengthen and accelerate Swelife projects that have considerable potential to reach the market with their innovative product, service or process.
