The current pandemic has clearly shown the need for cross-national sharing to secure Nordic digital healthcare sustainability and self-sufficiency in times of crises. The next decade will create increased pressure on the healthcare system, with or without new pandemics. Coordinated actions are needed.

The Nordic Innovation co-funded projects Nordic Health 2030 Movement and the Nordic Interoperability Project together with Nordic Health Data Collaboration and Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster invite current and future collaborators and stakeholders from academia, industry and society for an afternoon of call-to-action on the future health data ecosystem in the Nordics and how we turn recommendations into action to start unlocking the potential – before our unique data expires.  

Nordic Innovation Managing Director Svein Berg will feature as a keynote speaker and Senior Innovation Adviser Þórður Reynisson will join the panel debate.

The webinar will raise important questions on how we can use health data and collaborate on a Nordic level to realize the vision of making the Nordic region the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030, providing the best possible personalised health care for all its citizens. This is what Nordic Innovation is working towards in our Health, Demography and Quality of Life program.
