On the 24th of August 2001, a group of business and licensing executives united in Basel and founded the Swiss Pharma Licensing Group. The first Board defined objectives, recruited members and set up the foundation for today’s association.
Swiss HLG is open to the international healthcare and life sciences industries and provides the richest possible environment for business development professionals to network, build strategic relationships, exchange ideas and to share experiences.
To reflect our broad healthcare and life science industry mission and membership, the members voted at the General Assembly in January 2013, to change the name from “Swiss Pharma Licensing Group” to ‘Swiss Healthcare Licensing Group.’
The current Board is proud of the Association’s development and success. Swiss HLG currently has about 160 members (83% Swiss-based, others from Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Macedonia, Portugal, Spain, UK, Ireland, Netherlands, USA and South Korea). We have delivered 31 industry conferences, have an excellent national and international reputation for quality and we offer great opportunities for networking, education, and business development.
