Brexit Britain is set for a massive win as Sweden has based its international Office of Science and Innovation in the UK.
Sweden, which is in the EU, established its seventh international Office of Science and Innovation at its embassy in London last weekend.
According to their press statement, the Swedish Science Office will “develop and strengthen collaboration between the UK and Sweden on issues linked to the Government’s life sciences strategy, its export and investment strategy, the Research and Innovation Bill, and the Government’s strategic partnership programmes.
Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson, Minister for Business, Industry and Innovation, said: “The London Office is an important and strategic initiative for a country like Sweden where export and innovation issues are of vital importance.
“Establishing the Office is an effective way to meet the objectives of Sweden’s life sciences strategy and is completely in line with efforts to help the Government’s partnership programmes achieve an international impact.”
