LIF inaugurates new premises- And we were there!
LIF – the research-based pharmaceutical companies’ association – inaugurated their new premises at Sveavägen 63 in central Stockholm. Of course, we were there.
LIF President Anders Blanck began the inauguration by presenting the new premises as the new meeting place for anyone who wants to discuss cooperation in the healthcare field, plus a selection of offices as well as large and small meeting rooms to rent.
There will also be temporary workstations available for visitors – and LIF sincerely hope that many will take advantage of the stimulating environment that the new space can offer.
LIF already share these premises with several other organisations, such as IML, Leading Health Care, Swecare and Pharmaceutical Insurance with more to move in once the current two floors become three.
A highlight of the inauguration was the presence of Agneta Karlsson, Swedish State Secretary. On behalf of the Swedish government, she expressed the ambition for Sweden to become world leaders in Life Science and stressed the need for all key individuals on every possible level to cooperate in order to achieve this goal. Not surprisingly, all representatives agreed wholeheartedly!
After which it was time for the State Secretary to cut the inaugural ribbon, however the ribbon was cut into several pieces for each representative and then tied back together again in order to symbolise unified ambition as well as cooperation.
