  • You can get help to establish a dialogue and collaboration in selected markets
  • You can participate in trips to foreign knowledge environments, Networks and Clusters
  • You can get help to establish international consortia on research, development and innovation, via contact between companies, researchers and clinicians

Danish Healthtech focuses on the most significant international markets for health technology companies. Markets where the partners behind the network have already shown a good track record and have built strong network relationships.

The Innovation Network will also work with other markets on ad hoc basis. Markets where the contacts and experiences with Denmark’s Innovation Centers are good. Markets such as Germany, Israel and the US.

The Innovation Network Danish Healthtech collaborates with  Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network og West of England Academic Health Science Network in Great Britain. Knowledge collaboration gives access to a large market that is interesting for Danish companies. Pleas contact the Network Secretariat for more information.


Germany is Denmark's largest export market also within health. It is thus an obvious opportunity for Danish companies that can contribute with products and services that can digitize and automate within the healthcare sector.

Germany is in the same situation as we are, as they also have an increasing older population and a lack of competent and educated labor in the health and social area. One of the ways to meet this challenge is to focus on exploiting the possibilities of digital solutions.

The German market is also a very different market than the Danish. Through a number of projects that the innovation network parties stand for, you can gain insight into the challenges you need to know before you focus on further cooperation.

DISH - Digital & Innovation Skills Helix in Health

DISH focus on the development and training of eHealth skills for health professionals. The project develops, test and present training material, which will provide health and social care staff with ICT skills that enable them to better see the opportunities in how and where to apply eHealth solutions.

Due to demographic changes the European society is facing many elderly people that need health care and social care and only few staff members and limited public funding to meet their needs and demands. In order to respond to this challenge, a wide range of eHealth solutions are being introduced to the health and social care sector to ensure good quality care, empowerment of patients, and support to health and social care workers.

The DISH project is co-financed by the Erasmus programme within the EU. Hospital of Southern Jutland is lead. Welfare Tech is partner.
