Main Markets and Focus in 2020 - 2022

Hamburg to München


Expanding to Germany is made secure with the assistance and guidance provided by the Norway Health Tech team to the Norwegian health tech industry.

For two years our international team has worked diligently to develop a network of health institutions, organizations, experts, buyers & other contributors in and towards Germany, in order for interested Norwegian companies to enter the German market.

Many Norwegian companies have succeeded in Germany and lots more are interested in entering the German Market because there are opportunities for distribution and uptake of innovative Norwegian technology in the areas of E-Health, remote care, digital solutions, and other welfare & assistive technologies and devices.

Moreover, Germany established the model for procuring these solutions by their adoption of the Digital Health Care Act (Digitale-Versorgung-Gesetz, or DVG). There is thus a good match between German political directives and Norwegian products & services.

For 2021 we have up-to-date webinars on Germany, workshops and a Market Entry program.

England, Wales and Scotland

United Kingdom

UK is one of the most interesting markets in Europe today, with a long and outstanding collaboration and relation with Norway. The advantages of geographical proximity, English language and cultural similarity reduce barriers for market entry significantly. Therefore Norway Health Tech operates a Market Entry Program targeting UK in 2020 and 2021. Several Norwegian health tech companies already have found their way to UK and we are confident that more companies will increase their speed to market through this program.

The market for medical technologies has similar growth as we see in Norway and is the third largest medical device market in Europe. UK also import more medical device products than they export1) making it very receptive to new and innovative international technology. They have also looked at the health challenges in light of Covid-19 and made new assessment based on this. The UK has a very interested program called “Healthy Ageing”, addressing the core of the health industry in every possible way. All these different aspects are part of the Market Entry Program towards UK.  The program is run in collaboration with the UK Department for International Trade, and is funded by Stiftelsen Teknologiformidling.
