Nordics – 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.

The combined area of the Nordic countries forms the 7th largest nation in the world. The region has a population of around 27-28 million people. The Nordic countries cluster near the top in numerous metrics of national performance, including education, economic competitiveness, civil liberties, quality of life and human development. The Nordic countries share the Nordic model of economy and social structure, and a universal welfare sector financed by taxes.

Norway Health Tech is supporting Nordic collaboration and Nordic health tech and med tech programs.
