Why come to NLSdays?

NLSdays is a Nordic event centered around commercial opportunities within the Nordic life sciences and partnering in regard to this. The inherent commercial need within the ATMP field makes this event a great forum for our researchers, clinicians and SMEs to gain the necessary knowledge and contacts to take their products forward. The event also attracts leading decision makers from biotech, pharma and medtech as well as finance, policy and regulatory authorities, the engagement of whom is essential to the development of specific financial and regulatory solutions for the ATMP field.
