– We are incredibly proud to have been nominated once again. The nomination is based on the results created in the project. We are convinced that the target of 1 000 new jobs within the project time will be reached. Hopefully, we will be as happy as we were 2019 in Helsinki winning the EEPA Award, at the finale in Prague in November, says Margareta Wallentén, project manager for HealthTech Nordic.
On a global market, the challenges are the same: access to good and equal care when lacking resources such as money, competence, and increasing care needs. The digitalization of healthcare and welfare provides more, better, health for the money by the individual, patients, relatives, and profession.
– The HealthTech Nordic community, of more than 330 member companies, is leading the way for this paradigm shift. The companies are changing the way we give and receive care with their unique solutions. The nomination from EEPA in the category Supporting internationalization of business proves to us that we are working in the right way, expanding businesses and creating new jobs Margareta Wallentén adds.
