SALSS 2015

"It was the best SALSS ever."

(William A. Haseltine, Founder, Chairman & President, ACCESS Health International)

Stockholm, 19th-21st August, 2015

With focus on:

Immunology, Cancer and Infectious Disease, Highlighting Antibiotic Resistence and Vaccines

Having entered a new decade of the Swedish-American Life Science Summit, I am proud to conclude that the 11th SALSS, which was held 19-21 August in a beautiful summer Stockholm, once again succeeded in delivering “the best SALSS ever”. Presenting a comprehensive program, with a clear thought progressing throughout the agenda to bring forth the focus topics, and at the same time creating a friendly, open-minded and relation-centered atmosphere, SALSS constitutes a distinguished network and platform for business opportunities. I truly thank you all for your invaluable contribution to this year’s Summit and for making SALSS the asset it has become today!

Looking forward, I am delighted to inform you that next year SALSS will be held 24-26 August in Stockholm and will preliminary focus on Value-Based Healthcare, Healthcare IT and Alternative Financing. The latter includes Venture Philantropy, Family Offices and Crowdfunding, which are considered important sources to financing for overcoming some of the challenges of the industry today. Please make a reservation in your agenda!

Impressions from SALSS 2015

"The Swedish American Life Science Summit (SALSS) has proven to be a very important event where high level stake holders from the life science sector get a unique opportunity to get together. SALSS provides a meeting place for world leading scientists, policy makers and industry representatives to interact and establish new partnerships in order to develop innovative solutions to combat serious diseases and contribute to sustainable growth."
(Dr. Johanna Adami, Director & Head of Health Division, VINNOVA )

"This was my first meeting and I really enjoyed it. It was a unique opportunity to meet people with different backgrounds in life sciences and I learned a lot from many of them. I admire what you are doing for your country, for women and for helping to translate science into business useful for mankind."
(Rino Rappuoli, Chief Scientist, GSK Vaccines)

"Så roligt att få träffa och ha er alla på middag,jag är djupt imponerad över det idoga arbete du lägger ner och åstadkommer med SALSS."
(Annika Falkengren, CEO, SEB)

"You and your oustanding and charming female powerteam have managed to organize again an impressive symposium. Your summit is truly playing a pivotal and unique role to integrate the players of the knowledge triangle and perfectly matching the need to mitigate a deficit we have in Europe in that regard in the biomedical arena.

Besides of its top-notch quality, you have been able to give the event with its social activities an almost Mediterranean touch of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being."
(Alexander von Gabain,Deputy Vice Chancellor for Innovation and Commercial Outreach, Karolinska Institutet)

"I have to say this one was my favorite [conference] of 2015. The caliber of people you brought to the table, the level of engagement (I did not see one i-phone interruption the majority of the time which is unheard of in conferences), and the team culture you brought to the conference from the formal sessions to the fun dinners and cruise made us all feel privileged to be a part of it. Thank you also for being a trendsetter and woman leader who has really made an impact on the life sciences industry. "
(Kristin Pothier, Head of Life Sciences,Parthenon-EY )

"Thanks very, very much for a wonderful SALSS in Stockholm last month. Congratulations on the very fine work that you and your team do on behalf of our bioscience community. Looking forward to our next meeting."
(Charles L. "Chuck" Dimmler III, Partner, Torreya Partners)

"What a program, wow, I feel educated on a new level! So many inspiring meetings, exciting discussions and new friends!
And thank you for giving me the honor to moderate such a great panel on Financing of early stage life science. Already looking forward to 2016."

"I was, however, impressed (but not surprised) at the calibre of the people present, the presentations and indeed the overall structuring and organisation of the meeting."
(Andrew L. Greystoke, Managing Director, Pantheon Advisers)

"Thank you very much for having me at the summit, it was a great experience and I must say that I was very impressed by the program ,very 'a point' with Rosling and Emmanuelle C. Furthermore, I liked the informal interactions as well and I think the informal relaxing setting around it all makes the summit unique. I am impressed, in summa you should all feel happy about your creation!"

    "årets SALSS var både ett fyrverkeri inom Life Science och en symfoni för Life Science årets SALSS precis som alla SALSS skapade en miljö där alla kan bjuda på sig själva med glädje och humor utan att därmed falla ur ramen årets SALSS hade genomgående helt excellenta programpunkter som inte tävlade med varandra utan fokuserade på att bidra till helheten årets SALSS förmedlade ett djup, mening, innebörd och mognad på ett fundamentalt plan som är innerligt att få ta del av årets SALSS visade en stolthet och samtidigt en ödmjukhet och värme som är mycket klädsamt

Vill tacka dig och alla i ditt team för ett underbart elfte SALSS."
