Welcome to a Webinar on
Swedish-American Life Science Landscape and the US Healthcare under the Biden Administration

The US elections as well as the effects of the pandemic will bring about changes in the US healthcare system. Join us to learn more about the life science and healthcare landscape in the US, and listen to a distinguished panel discussing what to expect under the Biden administration. As part of our program focussing on the US healthcare and life science market, we invite you to join us in this interesting webinar.

The US healthcare market is the largest in the world, meaning that there is unequalled purchasing power, demand, and opportunity for innovation. It is one of the most important markets for Swedish life science exports. Recent developments, such as the effect of the pandemic and the coming change of power, have and will effect the US healthcare market.

Business Sweden will present their brandnew report on the Swedish-American Life Science Landscape, covering topics such as digitization, importance of prevention and access to healthcare and focus on collaboration, innovation and building back better. 

In the second part of the webinar, we will listen to and interact with a panel of experts discussing the US healthcare system under the Biden administration. What changes and focus areas can we expect? How can Swedish companies navigate the uncharted waters in order to succeed in the US? These and other questions will be discussed with the panel, moderated by Swedish journalist Petra Socolovsky.
