Nordic Life Science Days Side Event – Health Tech

    Welcome to a pre-conference Health Tech event
    – in collaboration with Medicon Valley Medtech Network

    The Nordics and Medicon Valley feature world-class healthcare and research institutions, highly skilled hardware and software expertise, a thriving game industry and a strong startup scene. When Nordic Life Science Days (NLSDays) is coming to Malmö 10th – 12th of September this year, this is a unique opportunity to showcase regional life science strongholds and reach out to the many international stakeholders that are here.  

    In order to seize this opportunity, Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA), Invest in Skåne, Copenhagen Capacity, and Medicon Valley Medtech Network have joined forces and decided to bring regional Danish and Swedish Health Tech expertise and entrepreneurship together with the international life science community of industry experts, investors and academia. Join us and be part of creating tomorrow’s Health Tech solutions by connecting international Health Tech stakeholders with start-ups and researchers to address challenges in health care!

    We invite Nordic HealthTech stakeholders to take the opportunity to meet global pharma companies to solve global life science challenges with digital innovations.

    We asked a number of global pharma stakeholders to come up with a challenge – a problem or opportunity that exists within their daily business where an existing or future Health Tech solution would have a positive impact.
    They are looking for new HealthTech solutions and stakeholders interested in applying themselves to some of the challenges within the world of pharma. Maybe you have an idea how to solve one of these challenges?

    Don’t miss this opportunity to network and to become updated about Nordic and international Health Tech activities!
