HealthTech @ Medicon Valley

Welcome to our HealthTech @ Medicon Valley event

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. To showcase our regional life science, healthcare and digitalisation strongholds, Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA) and Invest in Skåne have joined forces, in collaboration with Copenhagen Capacity, to bring you this HealthTech @ Medicon Valley event.

We asked a number of global pharma and healthcare stakeholders to come up with a challenge – a problem or opportunity that exists within their daily business where a HealthTech 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 and healthcare. The HealthTech @ Medicon Valley event is thus is a unique opportunity to showcase Medicon Valley’s innovation capacity within HealthTech and to bring regional HealthTech expertise and entrepreneurship together with the international life science community of industry experts, investors and researchers. This event is open for all.

Join us and be part of creating tomorrow’s HealthTech solutions!
