Communication and Training
Acting as a knowledge interface, SwedBio invests in communication and training to support knowledge generation, collective learning and knowledge sharing across knowledge systems.
SwedBio conducts strategic communication adapted to meet the needs of SwedBio’s target groups. Regular news updates are made through a battery of communication channels; through the website, social media, publications such as reports and policy briefs, a quarterly web based newsletter and through face-to-face meetings, side events, seminars and dialogues.
