Nordic Innovation is proud to unveil the return of the Nordic Health App Award for 2024 to amplify the transformative power of the rapidly growing Nordic health app industry.
Aligned with the ambitious Nordic health vision to establish the Nordics as the world’s most integrated health region by 2030, this competition invites innovators from the Nordics to join the forefront of digital health evolution.
This dynamic initiative, building on the 2023 competition, serves as a rallying point for companies developing groundbreaking health apps and digital health products. With a focus on preventative care, home care, and clinical/hospital care solutions, the competition provides a platform for showcasing innovations that contribute to the Nordic health vision.
Application deadline: 29 February
Participation is free!
Accreditation and exposure
Five finalists will be selected by an esteemed jury. The three top-scoring companies will undergo a complimentary assessment against the Nordic Digital Health and Evaluation Criteria (NordDEC).
Nordic Innovation will showcase the experiences and solutions of the three companies in a showcase booklet published by Nordic Innovation later this year. This platform serves to elevate the visibility of these innovators and the NordDEC accreditation of the top three.
From the top-three companies, the jury will select a winner who will be invited to present its solution during Arendalsuka, the Norwegian Democracy Festival, in August 2024, and get exposure to a Nordic audience.
NordDEC, launched by Nordic Interoperability Project(N!P) in 2022 with co-funding from Nordic Innovation, is a “fast-track” for evaluation and accreditation for digital health products in the Nordics, also offering a distribution platform for approved solutions, promoting them across the Nordic region. The assessments will be conducted by the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) as the NordDEC partner and service provider.
All interested companies are invited to participate in an information-webinar on 14. February 2024. The webinar will give you the opportunity to learn more about the award, the accreditation and the entire process. You will also be able to ask questions. More information on this webinar will come out soon - stay tuned!
The Nordic Health App Award is funded under the Life Science and Health Tech program with the aim to push forward the development and use of the Nordic Digital Health platform and the Nordic Digital Health Evaluation Criteria (NordDEC).
The project is developed in collaboration with N!P (The Nordic Interoperability Project).
