How do we react in a world overcome by COVID-19? This is the key question that is driving Norway Health Tech to connect the strong health innovation ecosystem present in Norway to the rest of the world.
Many areas of opportunity within research, innovation, development and commercialization are primed for expertise and intervention from Norway Health Tech and Norway at large. With international support from Israel, the United Kingdom, the USA and others, it is clear that our ambition to coordinate buyers, health experts, and top-level managers through various programs is central in the remediation and counteraction of the different consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organization of sales opportunities and support is thanks to funding from Oslo Municipality and in collaboration with Cross4Health/EU Project. With this contribution, in 2020, Norway Health Tech has decided to take charge and build a digital hub featuring COVID-19 solutions. The hub is there to bridge the gap between companies with innovative solutions that target the waves of the COVID-19 crisis and the national and international markets that are in need of finding those offerings.
It is not too late for those startups and scaleups to submit their solution profile to the digital hub. The immediacy of COVID-19, its impact on resources, its care interruptions, and the personal trauma it causes- all these aspects are seen in varying degrees of severity around the world and require ongoing alleviation. Norway Health Tech wishes to convey this, by keeping its doors open to solutions and products for the short-term and long-term consequences of the pandemic. We wish for no stone to be left unturned and urge those companies who have yet to contact us to contribute their creative solutions and join forces with us so we can make a meaningful impact in the fight against COVID-19.
