Main Markets in 2020 - 2021

England, Wales and Scotland

United Kingdom

Norway Health Tech operates a Market Entry Program targeting UK in 2020 and 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.

If interested, get in touch with Trine Radmann, tr@norwayhealthtech.com

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.

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).

Then, it seems there is a good match between German political directives and Norwegian products & services.

With the established demand and the plethora of Norwegian companies that have developed sought after products & services– the next step is developing individualized strategy for Norway Health Tech members that would like to enter the German market.

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

Coming in March is the third webinar on German health care prospects as well as a matchmaking workshop.
