Who is Danish Healthtech
The Innovation Network Danish Healthtech focuses on health technology. It ranges from the regulated medical devices over personalised solutions to welfare technology solutions for the healthcare sector and the home. These areas are tied together by digitization and health data.
- Better and more cost-effective prevention, diagnostics and treatment
- Personal treatment focusing on medical devices
- Citizen-related and technology-supported healthcare
- Physical and mental health
The network focuses on the technological possibilities within:
- Personalised technologies – including additive manufacturing (3D printing)
- Digitization – including better utilization of health and behavioural data
(big and small data)
- Internet of Things – including wearables and sensor technology

The Innovation Network Danish Healthtech consists of a strong partnership with four Danish regions, which ensures access to clinical collaboration in the broader health service. Five universities and two technical institutes are strong knowledge partners, and as a whole, the network is part of a national ecosystem that has been built up over ten years.
In addition, a large number of municipalities are involved, which are dedicated members of the regional clusters. Tt ensures that knowledge-bridge activities are created across the whole healthcare sector, which is an essential element in many of the challenges we face in terms of prevention and urban technology.
