Sound & Health
Sound & Health facilitates a public-private-platform in order to foster new linkages between knowledge domains, industries and sectors with the aim of driving innovation and growth in Denmark using sound, ICT and other relevant technologies for healthcare demands.
Sound solutions for healthcare is an innovative growth area that addresses one of the greater societal challenges of our time. The demand for solutions in diagnostics, treatment and therapy is growing due to demographic change and relies on truly trans-disciplinary and public-private RDI efforts.
Sound & Health is a cross-cluster project between two Danish Innovation Networks, Danish Sound og Welfare Tech Innovations Network for Health and Welfare Technology. The project is focusing on facilitating a public-private-platform in order to foster new linkages between knowledge domains, industries and sectors with the aim of driving innovation and growth in Denmark using sound, ICT and other relevant technologies for healthcare demands.
The field of collaboration lies within the official definition1 of one of Europe’s most prospective emerging industries ‘Personalised Medicine’. The concentration of Danish SMEs and High growth young SMEs within the Personalised Medicine industries is high compared to other European countries (Emerging Industries – Extension of the European Cluster Observatory: 2013).
Sound & Health will enable Danish high growth SMEs to leverage ongoing research activities in application oriented technology development activities through a public-private platform, and simultaneously test products and services in a real-life settings involving health care professionals, patients and decision makers.
