Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SSIE) is a complete academic environment at Sahlgrenska Academy and University of Gothenburg.

SSIE bridges academia, society, government and healthcare through active participation and development in education, research and innovation activities. Our goals are to develop people, tools, and projects that deliver the capabilities to create value in the healthcare and life science sectors in the context of an emerging knowledge-based economy.

SSIE collaborates closely with the Sahlgrenska Academy, the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, local and international life science industry, the university and regional innovation systems actors, and with our academic partners at Chalmers University of Technology and several faculties at University of Gothenburg, including the School of Business, Economics, and Law and the School of Crafts and Design.


SSIE currently educates students, researchers, and professionals through specific courses and a complete master's program on Business Creation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedicine. Our pedagogy is interdisciplinary and action-based, incorporating areas of management, law, economics, technology, design, and life science to address modern challenges through real innovations projects together with partner organizations.

We offer a broad range of courses within the main subject of Business Creation and Entrepreneurship in Biomedicine as well as our two year Master's Programme.mTo be able to reach out to the broader audience, we are working with an e-learning approach and offer several distance courses. 

The master's programme is focused on recruiting a broad range of students through a local admissions process. Student backgrounds covers primarily three fields; bio (such as biomedicine, pharmacy, medicine, molecular biology, etc), law and business. We have had students from all continents of the world. Our students study together with engineering and business students from Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship, which offers a unique mix and a unique interdisciplinary learning experience.
