The Future of Healthcare – Sustainable and Smart today


The Future of Healthcare – Sustainable and Smart today

Upgraded joined a new 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.

  • October 2nd 2019: The first event, Health100 unconference hosted in Helsinki by Upgraded, brought together 100 impactful people of the Nordic health scene. Read the summary of the discussions at the event in the Nordic Health Resolution
  • The second event took place in Montreal on October 15-17th 2019 with the participation of several Canadian hospitals. This was primarily an export event, which was driven mainly by the NCSH and directed towards stakeholders looking for Nordic sustainable solutions in healthcare.

There will be also a study visit to a Dutch hospital to see implemented sustainable and smart solutions, and a high-level meeting on Ministry level with discussion on a potential Green Deal for sustainable healthcare in the Nordics. The dates will be announced in January 2020.
