Study trip to Germany (North-Rhine Westphalia)

26 - 28 September

North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW), Germany

Join us for a study trip to NRW, Germany, organized by NHT in collaboration with the German-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (AHK) and Norwegian Smart Care Cluster (NSCC). The trip is designed for health tech companies who see Germany as their target market, as well as representatives from the public health sector who wish to exchange experiences with their German counterparts.

During the trip, participating companies will have the opportunity to meet with experts in the field of health tech and learn about the German healthcare system and the health tech market in NRW. Our partners in Germany have suggested possible activities, but the program will be tailored to the specific needs and interests of participating companies.

The study trip aims to foster international collaboration and knowledge sharing between Norway and Germany, two countries at the forefront of digital health innovation. As you know, Norway and Germany share many common challenges and opportunities in the field of healthcare. During the trip, we will host panel discussions with leading experts in the German healthcare sector, who will share their insights on the latest developments in digital health. This will provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn about the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in the field, and to engage with like-minded professionals from across the globe.


The program will span over 2 days, 26th and 27th of September. A detailed agenda will follow soon.

The cost for participating in the study trip is 5000 NOK per company (for up to 2 persons, exclusive for NHT or NSCC members), with a 50% discount for companies in the Market Access Programme Germany 2023. While participants will have to cover their own costs for travel and accommodations, catering during the program will be provided.
