Due to the pandemic, extraordinary circumstances call for answers and rapid development. In response, we wish to reach outside Norwegian borders and cultivate international cooperation. We begin the effort with this USA-Norway webinar!
It is only becoming more salient as the days pass that demand is increasing for COVID-19 solutions and products. Showing us that acquiring remedies that can counteract the pandemic consequences and mitigate any future crises that are related to the pandemic, are vital.
It is already known that Norway has a strong innovation ecosystem for developing health-related technologies. Then it follows that the next natural step is to share those technologies and bolster our health tech community.
Furthermore, with strong political support from the US and Norway for increasing collaboration within research, innovation, development, and commercialization-let’s begin this international venture together with this unique webinar.
Join us November 5th , for informative dialogue between the USA, with speakers from Texas and Pennsylvania featuring pitches from several up and coming startups and SME’s. The speakers will be:
Norway Health Tech and the Covid-19 pandemic
The pandemic will end, even though we do not know when. The only thing we know is that life as it was before the pandemic, has changed. More than 38 million people have contracted Covid-19 and more than 1 million have died.
Life and the way we work and socialize has changed tremendously in 2020. Norway Health Tech has reacted to the pandemic by driving changes and collaborations to ease the consequences. We do so by offering a digital platform with Covid-19 solutions delivering high-tech solutions and services that – basically – save lives, reduce worries and money.
