Nordic Innovation calls for health proposals
In cooperation with Tekes, Vinnova, Innovation Norway and Rannis, Nordic Innovation invites consortia of organisations to submit proposals for Nordic projects in the field of health innovation.
The aim of the call is to unite and strengthen efforts across the Nordics in order to develop a Nordic ecosystem for health innovation. A strong Nordic ecosystem can create opportunities for Nordic businesses through a closer connection between developers, demanders and test environments in a larger region. Providing developers in the region with the most relevant partners irrespective of country, chances are that they will get further faster. The ambition is to foster scalable solutions that through interaction with the needs of users and the Nordic healthcare sector are well positioned for export to a growing world market for innovative healthcare solutions. Employee-driven innovation and the development of solutions that are needed by the healthcare sector are integrated aspects of this initiative.
The main focus of this call is to create an ecosystem with special emphasis on test beds, business development and export. However, we are open to strong applications in other areas of health innovation as well. We will accept projects that are within the areas of:
Other strong applications within health innovation
The call will finance projects for a total of up to 25 MNOK.
Funding decisions will be made based on evaluation of all incoming projects according to defined criteria.
The application portal will open in August 2014
Deadline for project proposals is Monday 20 October 2014 at 10:00 am CET.
Nordic Innovation and partners will host a Nordic matchmaking event 4 September 2014.
