Markets we focus on

Our home market


There is a unique collaboration and cultural bonds between the five Nordic countries Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Sweden. Norway Health Tech share the mission of building a bridge between the Nordics and health markets outside of the Nordics, but also build stronger ties between the Nordic countries when it comes to the Nordic health tech market. We believe in Norwegian and Nordic health technology, products and services and that the Nordics often have more to offer and makes it easier to open doors together in a global scale, than separately.


Including Germany, Austria and Switzerland

European German speaking markets

Germany created the first social insurance fund for medical care in the world. Chancellor Bismarck created a “sickness fund” back in 1883 which were expanded to a universal healthcare system, over time. Solidarity, subsidiarity and corporatism were the funding principles then, and are still the main principles today. Germany has long had the most consumer-oriented healthcare system in Europe. Patients are allowed to seek almost any type of care they wish whenever they want it.


Canada and the United States

North America


Norway Health Tech works continuously to provide Norwegian health tech companies guidance on how to commercialize and grow in the American health tech market.

The cluster prepares and provide companies with first-hand knowledge on what the company should do short and long term to prepare the business for US entry. We do this through intiating of programs involving market entry experts, and inviting these experts to Norway, and inviting companies to participate in different acceleration in the US.



A vast market with new opportunities

The Norwegian health industry is trading more than before in global and foreign markets national, regional and local value chains. The companies are therefore relying more than ever on free trade and favorable global framework conditions. Global development offers the opportunity for Norwegian companies to respond to the increase in global demand for sustainable solutions. The Norwegian healthcare industry can provide (some of) these solutions.

EEA and Norway Grants

Eastern Europe

The EEA Grants and Norway Grants represent the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to reducing economic and social disparities and to strengthen bilateral relations between Norway and 15 EU member countries in Central and Southern Europe and the Baltics.


New opportunities


Norway Health Tech is cooperating with Oslo Met in setting up a project in three African countries; Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania, where health tech is one of the areas of collaboration.
