Innovation networks and incubators
Swelife’s network of local innovation stakeholders offers support and business development to all researchers, entrepreneurs and innovation projects interested in our financial support. They operate from incubators and innovation offices, have a local focus and a well-established national network.
Swelife’s programme office has operational responsibility for the programme. The organisation includes programme management and portfolio coordination, communication management and financial follow-up. The work is complemented by efforts and expertise within the partner organisations. The programme office is located at Lund University, where the application to initiate the innovation programme was originally written, but its staff operate in several locations.
We welcome your involvement
Swelife activities are based on ideas and proposals from representatives of academia, healthcare and industry.
