This is how Sweden gets more company-initiated clinical drug trials

Medical research and drug development are constantly searching for new knowledge to improve public health by providing patients better treatment. However, If the number of company-initiated clinical drug trials is to increase, each actor in the field needs good conditions for carrying out its part of the work. It requires cooperation between the state, SKR and the regions as well as the industry associations within Life Science. Many of the puzzle pieces needed to succeed already exist today, but they need to be strengthened and the puzzle needs to be laid to create a whole. Lif invites to a live seminar that brings together the people who hold these pieces and is able to put them in the right place so that Sweden will have more company-initiated clinical trials. The seminar will be held in Swedish.
