Projects are an important part of Upgraded’s operations and helping the startups.

At the moment we’re involved in the following projects:

The Future of Healthcare – Sustainable and Smart today

Upgraded joined a 1,5 year project funded by Nordic Innovation to target Nordic sustainable and smart healthcare.

The project is conducted together with our partners Nordic Center of Sustainable Healthcare (NCSH), a cross-sectoral umbrella organisation for stakeholders, organizations, projects and expert knowledge in the area of sustainable healthcare, and DTU Business, a part of the Danish Technical University. The project consists of several Nordic and international events aimed to bring Nordic knowledge on sustainable healthcare and smart healthtech solutions to a global market.

Health Ecosystem Maps for Startups

The health startup industry is exceptionally diverse – and so are the supporting, regulatory, funding etc. entities – the core objective of those metro maps is to gather the most important players of the industry, who provide support for startups specifically focusing on the health and wellness sector.

Pilotit Pyörimään – Spinning Pilots (together with Laurea and Metropolia Universities of Applied Sciences, entrepreneurship society Helsinki Think Company, ended 10/2018)

Project is project funded by the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council. The goal of the project is to promote the growth and networking of the Helsinki-Uusimaa region’s health tech companies on foreign markets.

One of the aims of the projects was to enhance innovation cooperation between companies and Universities. We identified two models or “best practises” – cooperation deriving from the needs of the community (1)  and cooperation based on the needs of the University (2).
