Well-functioning businss ecosystems are crucial for understanding the needs and possibilities for Nordic life science and healthcare SMEs. However, finding ways to test their solutions and products is a common challenge for these types of businesses.
Now, Nordic Innovation has an open call for two exisiting Nordic test bed networks within the field of health technologies to strengthen Nordic value chains and access to testing for Nordic life science and healthcare SMEs.
Deadline: 31 March 2022 at 12.00 CET
Budget: 2 x NOK 3.000.000 = NOK 6.000.000
By strengthening existing Nordic testbed networks, Nordic Innovation aims to nurture a more robust testbed capacity in the Nordics, with the capacity to test a higher number of solutions and products, and lower thresholds for companies to test health technology solutions in several testbeds in various Nordic countries.
Until the end of 2021, Nordic Innovation co-funded the Nordic Proof testbed network. The final project report is available to download below:
The call for proposals is a part of our Life Science and Health Tech program launched by the Nordic ministers of business and innovation. The program is an effort to position the Nordics as a leading region within life science and health technology and support the vision of making the Nordic region the most integrated and sustainable in the world in 2030.
