Introduction to the conference theme: 

The NRI-Conference aims to provide a platform for discussion of new ideas as well as to contribute to stronger cooperation among professionals in the healthcare industry in the Nordic region.

Common Nordic values help the region solidify its position as one of the world’s most innovative and competitive.”
