Welcome to our inaugural ’ATMP world tour’ program of 2021!

The event is being held virtually April 26-30, 2021. The full program can be found further down.


We’re very pleased to bring you a star studded cast of ’world leading’ ATMP activities discussing the competencies, partnerships and infrastructures that make great ideas and great technologies a reality for patients.

This event has been tailored to the online world and hopefully becomes a positive, annual online outcome of the Coronavirus pandemic to complement the return of physical meetings. The event will be held as a ZOOM webinar. A link will be sent closer to the time to registrants. All presentations can be viewed live or within a month of the presentation on our ATMP Sweden YouTube channel.

We wanted to do something a little different but simple to suit the online format so for every hour timeslot eg. 13:00 you will get;

  • 5min before the hour (eg. 12:55), your tour of the world, a slide with 3 things the speaker loves about the city they live in
  • on the hour (eg. 13:00) our ’time to connect’ sponsorship slides
  • 2min over the hour (eg. 13:02) the host welcomes participants, introduces themselves and the speaker
  • 5min over the hour (eg. 13:05) speaker presentation begins
  • 30min over the hour (eg. 13:30) question/discussion time lead by host, audience participation
  • 50min over the hour (eg. 13:50) session ends

The graphic here gives the Swedish/CET time of the presentation in blue and the ’local’ time of the presenter in green. The dates are Monday April 26th till Friday April 30th, 2021.
