Governing board

The governing board is Swelife’s decision-making body, responsible for taking decisions regarding strategy and implementation. This may include the focus and theme for new calls for applications, projects and investments, as well as the appointment of working groups and their leaders.

Through its composition, the group represents academia, healthcare and industry, including industry organisations.


Nominating committee

The board members are proposed by a nominating committee. This is done annually with the objective of creating a composition that ensures a strategic and national focus on achieving the programme vision.

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.

Programme office

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.
