On May 26-27, Education Minister Anna Extrom will travel to the UK with a Swedish royal couple. The Minister, among others, will visit Astra Geneca and the University of Cambridge to speak at the Impact Stability Conference in London and sign an agreement on cooperation in life sciences between Sweden and the United Kingdom.
– The United Kingdom is Sweden’s most important research and trade partner, and we collaborate in many areas. Both Sweden and the United Kingdom have strong traditions in research and discovery and are world leaders in life sciences. The Govt-19 epidemic has clearly highlighted the importance of having an important life sciences field, and I hope that deep cooperation will lead to further progress in the region, says Education Minister Anna Extrom.
