HealthTech @ Medicon Valley 2021

HealthTech @ Medicon Valley 2021: Commercialisation in Europe
Wednesday the 17th of November 8.30 – 13.00
A side event to TechConnect Europe 2021

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), Copenhagen Capacity, and Invest in Skåne have joined forces to bring you the 2021 edition of the HealthTech @ Medicon Valley event.

This year’s HealthTech @ Medicon Valley half-day session will explore the landscape for the commercialisation of HealthTech offerings in Europe, with Denmark and Sweden in focus.

It features national perspectives on health technology assessments and reimbursement requirements, and a selection of specific real world examples of how HealthTech companies in Medicon Valley have journeyed and succeeded on the road towards commercialisation. It will also draw on the retrospective view of a leading European healthcare system from their breakthrough experiences in creating a customised digital health framework for reimbursement.

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