Nordic Clusters creates membership add value

The four Nordic health care and welfare technology clusters  in the NorCare project, Danish Welfare Tech, Norwegian Smart Care Cluster, Business Region Gothenburg og Oulu Health join forces at HiMMS & Health 2.0 to create add value to participating members. This will take at side events before and during the conference.

9.-10. June Side event: The role of 5G in shaping the future of health. Organizer: Oulu Health.
Oulu is one of the leading hubs for welfare technology. Known as the place, where the world’s first 5G hospital is under construction. The programme at the Oulu event counts a network session and seminar at Oulu University Hospital. Oulu is an hour flight north of Helsinki, so apart from insights in 5G and other advanced technologies such as IoT, VR, AR og big data, Oulu offers midnight sun. Read more and register here.

12. June Networking dinner
Right after the HiMMS & Health 2.0’s networking reception the NorCare Clusters arrange a networking dinner. Time will show if it is going to be a reunion for participants in former NorCare activities or with new potential partners. Hopefully both, and for sure we will guarantee an informal evening with room for networking and dialogue.

As the official programme develops the four NorCare clusters will announce time and place for more side events:

  • Cluster Meet and Greet – network event at the conference for all participants from the four NorCare clusters
  • Project presentations of Digital Health & Care 4.0 and other joint Nordic projects
  • Matchmaking
  • Possibly joint NorCare participation in the Nordic Workshop in the track Communties and Partners 11:30 – 13:30 at 11. June. We await further information from the conference organizers on this.
