                    [longdesc] => Life sciences is one of the key growth sectors in the Scottish economy, employing almost 40,000 people in more than 700 different organisations and delivering £2 billion in annual economic value ? but how do we release its full potential and take it to the next level?

The 2017 Life Sciences Strategy, launched in February, aims to harness the outstanding achievements of the sector and to create a blueprint to take the sector through to 2025. Developed by the Life Sciences Scotland Industry Leadership Group, it concentrates on four key areas: sustainable production; innovation and commercialisation; the business environment; and internationalisation;

At this conference, significant players in the Scottish life sciences community will examine each of the four areas, with a focus on growth, innovation and ambition. How do we create the right business environment for large and small companies to thrive in Scotland, how do we take products and processes into global markets, how do we best harness innovation and commercialisation to drive growth ? and how do we do all this sustainably?

This is a major life sciences event bringing all the sector's key players together. 

Confirmed speakers include: 

Paul Wheelhouse, Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy, Scottish Government 

Dave Tudor, Vice-President, Primary Supply Chain, GlaxoSmithKline, and Chair, Scottish Life Sciences Industry Leadership Group. 

Professor Jim McDonald, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, University of Strathclyde

Scott Johnstone, Chief Executive, Scottish Life Sciences Association
