Swecare is a unique non-profit platform where academia, public and private sector join forces toward enhanced export and internationalization of Swedish health care and life science.
Swecare was founded in 1978 by the Swedish government and the health care industry together as a semi-governmental non-profit organization. Today, Swecare has more than 100 Swedish companies and organizations in its network. The members represent the entire health care spectrum – from the small startup company to university hospitals, regions, and global corporations, working with everything from biotech to medical technology, pharmaceuticals, and health care services.
Swecare’s work is based on the triple helix model where academia, public sector, and private sector jointly address health care challenges. Joining forces and addressing problems from multiple angles in turn increases collaboration and international competitiveness of Swedish health care.
Swecare’s vision is a world with good health on equal terms as well as access to high quality and sustainable health care.
Swecare seeks to contribute to increased export of Swedish products, services and knowledge within health care.
