Swiss-Scandinavian Bio-Business Seminar 2014

8th Swiss-Scandinavian Bio-Business Seminar

The 8th Swiss-Scandinavian Bio-Business Seminar is organized by the Nordic countries in cooperation with Swiss partners. During this high-level partnering and investor conference, Swiss and Nordic biotech and pharmaceutical companies as well as investors meet in one-to-one meetings and present themselves in plenum.

The goal of the conference and by means of the Swiss-Nordic focus is to establish new contacts and networks.

  • The previous SSBBS 2013 gathered more than 120 participants.
  • Some 220 one-to-one meetings took place.
  • In over 60% of the matchmaking meetings, further contact was planned or a cooperation considered 


The conference has a broad focus within biotech and pharma (drug development, drug delivery, bio materials, medical device, diagnostics, contract manufacturing, CRO, etc.) and gathers small, early stage companies as well as global, commercial corporations.

The conference is open for biotech and pharma companies as well as investors within the life science industry. For other types of companies other conditions apply (e.g. participation fee for business services providers is 1500 CHF), please contact the SSBBS organization at or +43 1 402 35 15 25.
