COLLABORATE is hosted by Swansea University Medical School, Swansea University College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University School of Management, ARCH, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg and Hywel Dda University Health Boards.
It continues in bringing together Health Boards, Universities, Industry, Third Sector and the wider life science community to share and celebrate collaborative working practices and stimulate further partnerships.
Every year, a range of experts from across academia, NHS and industry speak throughout the day on a broad range of themes. Interactive workshop sessions allow delegates to find out more about existing collaborations taking place and provide an opportunity to network and establish new collaborations.
"Swansea University life science business development, impact and engagement manager Kevin Fernquest said: "The life science sector is one of Wales's fastest growing sectors.
"We are privileged here in South West Wales to have so many emerging, innovative firms which are helping to not only boost the local economy but also transform lives with their research, innovation and enterprise.
"Collaborate is a great opportunity to see so many of these firms come together with our NHS and university colleagues in one place."
