Nordic HealthTech pioneers at Health 2.0
October 1-4, visitors to the Annual Health 2.0 Fall Conference in Santa Clara, CA will be able to meet some of our high potential startup members, demonstrating a variety of HealthTech solutions in the Nordic stand.
The Nordic region is an agile hub for tomorrow’s HealthTech solutions. Seven HealthTech startups hailing from the Nordics are to exhibit at Health 2.0, a leading venue of cutting-edge innovations that are transforming health and healthcare today.
HealthTech Nordic and Nordic Innovation House have brought together the delegation of startups. Nordic Innovation House is a soft landing space for Nordic startups in the heart of Paolo Alto, offering location, connections and go-to-market programs.
The effort at Health 2.0 is the first in a row of activities aiming at giving the startup members, ready to scale internationally, an opportunity to explore the US market. Health 2.0 offers networking with the most influential health care providers and developers, meeting venture capitalist, taking part in live product demos, and learning from experienced advisors.
– Together we’re increase the competiveness of Nordic HealthTech startups, and put the Nordics on the global HealthTech map, says Marianne Larsson, Director HealthTech Nordic.
If you will be at Heath 2.0, come by the Nordic stand and don’t miss Lunch & Learn: Nordic HealthTech on October 2. Marianne Larsson and participating startups will give you insight into health care solutions inspired by, and feeding into the innovative Nordic health care systems.
HealthTech Nordic is partially financed by Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak, European Development Fund.
Nordic Test Beds is searching for new healthcare products and innovations – The third and final call for test cases
In the autumn of 2017 seven healthcare products will be selected for testing within NoTeB, the Nordic cooperation network of university hospital based testbeds. The test sites include innovation centers and testbeds at the university hospitals of Oulu (Finland), Uppsala (Sweden), Skåne (Sweden), Aalborg (Denmark) and Oslo (Norway). The call is open from September 1st until September 22nd.
The NoTeB project aims to both build cooperation between Nordic test beds operating in healthcare, and to learn testing practices from each other. In addition, companies are supported in their attempt to reach the Nordic healthcare market. The long-term goal is to implement permanent and common practices for joint Nordic testing of healthcare products. NoTeB is funded by Nordic Innovation, a Nordic institution working to promote cross-border trade and innovation, with board members selected by the five Nordic governments.
The call is open for companies and innovators who
- are interested in getting their healthcare products or services tested by healthcare professionals
- can present a mature business plan for the product/service
- have resources to support testing during the autumn/winter of 2017, including travels to the different test sites
The product or service:
- has an innovative approach or solution for real problems in especially hospital environment
- is preferably still in the development phase and hence able to adapt depending on test results
- can be a prototype or a mature innovation
- is not yet broadly on the market; in case the product/service has reached final development
Please note that the following is not offered within this call:
- Clinical tests
- Tests including patients
- Support for procurement
The major intention of the call is to test products or services that are not too complex to be put into operation at the testing sites. The goal is that testing of all cases will be completed during winter 2017-2018.
