HealthTech @ Medicon Valley 2022

HealthTech @ Medicon Valley 2022: Mental health – Converging tech, pharma and digitalisation
Wednesday the 12th of October 14.00 – 15.30

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.

Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA), Copenhagen Capacity, and Invest in Skåne have therefore joined forces to bring you “HealthTech @ Medicon Valley” – an annual series of events and webinars showcasing our regional life science, healthcare and digitalisation strongholds. You can view the recording from 2021’s edition here.

This year’s HealthTech @ Medicon Valley webinar will explore the convergence of digital solutions from Big Tech, Big Pharma, and healthtech startups, in addressing one of the biggest healthcare challenges that many societies face today around mental health. According to the World Economic Forum, mental health is one of the five leading chronic diseases facing the world, contributing to $16 trillion of anticipated global economic costs between 2011 and 2030.

The webinar will feature perspectives from Big Tech and Big Pharma as to how they are approaching and engaging in healthcare to add value to patients and tackle various healthcare challenges such as mental health, as well as successful Medicon Valley-based healthtech startups on their innovative approach to addressing mental health and neurological disorders.

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