Four action areas

We have built the Health, Demography and Quality of Life program around four action areas, which will continuously be developed as the program is progressing.

The Bridging Nordic Data Initiative will run from 2018 to 2021. The aim of the initiative is to find solutions on how to bridge Nordic health data and personal data for utilization in the Nordic health ecosystems. The first step will be to discuss, elaborate and anchor the above vision. Planned activities:

  • Scenario planning within personalized health, data driven health and data sharing conducted by Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS).  

Prevention and Healthy Patient will run from 2018 to 2021. This action area will focus on value-based health care, prepare for the development of solutions using personal health data and increase the involvement of the patient in the treatment to ensure quality of life. Activities will be planned during 2019. 

HealthyCities will run from 2018 to 2021. Through this action area, we aim to improve health and quality of life for Nordic citizens by creating a healthy supportive environment based on innovative solutions. Planned activities:

  • Hackathons in Reykjavik and Helsinki March 2019
  • Call for proposals 

Value ChainCollaboration is expected to run from 2018 to 2021 and is a contribution to boost exports of Nordic solutions, strengthen Nordic export networks and create value chain collaborations at markets with high potential for Nordic solutions. Planned activities:
