Can Data Help Us Navigate Complex Health Challenges?

09:00 - 15:00
Dokk 1, Aarhus, Denmark
Cykelbro i København

Join us for this conference and learn how data can help us to solve challenges within the Nordic health care sector.

Health data can be a goldmine of opportunities when we face 'wild problems' - complex health challenges that require innovative solutions. This conference will explore how we can use public and private health data to promote health and prevent diseases. Focusing on the Nordic model, we will investigate how we can collect and use health data in ways that respect the trust-based relationship between citizen and authority.

At the conference, we will present the results of a research project that has examined how much school children move during school hours.

The conference will explore how we can:

  • use health data for intensive work with prevention
  • equip decision-makers to make bold preventive decisions with long-term effects
  • adapt the use of health data to the Nordic societal model
  • tackle cross-sectoral issues such as health and well-being among children and young people

This conference is particularly relevant for politicians responsible for the health sector, researchers, health professionals interested in digital solutions and data usage, companies, and digitalization managers in municipalities and agencies.


The conference is organized by the Nordic Smart City Network which is supported by Nordic Innovation through the Nordic Healthy Cities project with the aim to create supportive urban environments and living, to improve health and quality of life.
