Norway Health Tech operates a Market Entry Program targeting UK in 2020 and first half of 2021. The program is run in collaboration with the UK Department for International Trade. The program is funded by Stiftelsen Teknologiformidling.
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.
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 avery interested program called “Healthy Aging”, addressing the core of the health industry in every possible way. All these different aspects are part of the Market Entry Program towards UK. Sign up before OCT 26th if you are interested in participating. This is the link.
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.
Norway Health Tech’s Market Entry Program is intended to accelerate the innovative products and services that address the professional healthcare providers incl. hospitals, enhanced health in care homes and welfare technologies.
