The Bridge 2016

The Bridge is an event with the purpose of building a platform where science and business can meet and prosperous relationships grow. The aim is to connect entrepreneurs, opinion leaders and investors with today’s most influential minds within life science and materials science.

The event takes place in Lund, Sweden the 22–23 of June 2016. The two-day conference offers a occasion for knowledge transfer between science and business that can spur innovation and create new solutions and development.

RISE is one of the partners for this project, and among the many speakers you have Nobel Prize winner Konstantin Novoselov, (Professor at University of Manchester, won the Nobel Prize in 2010) and Peter Kjäll, Business Area Manager Life Science from Acreo, in the programme. 

Peter Kjäll and two other speakers, will each one present a case with examples of research and solutions under the theme "Ensuring healthy lives". Peter Kjäll will speak about the BioCom Lab project at Acreo; how bioelectronics and printed electronics can be used for future e-Health solutions.

The Bridge is initiated by Invest in Skåne and Medicon Village in close collaboration with the two state-of-the-art research facilities MAXIV and ESS, and with the support of regional and international companies and organisations.

The themes of 2016:

  • Clean water for everyone
