Scotland is facing many of the same challenges as Denmark in terms of an aging population. Along with increasing healthcare expenses and an urgent lack of care staff, Scotland calls for reforms and improvements of efficiency through digitalisation and smart care technologies. The Scottish healthcare system has not favoured digital healthcare to the same extent as in Denmark. As a result, Scotland is an ‘emerging market’ when it comes to digital health tech and thus a favourable opportunity for Danish companies seeking to expand into international markets.
Danish companies have over the last decade invested heavily in developing new innovative products and technology-based care solutions. Including technologies such as e-health, health apps, artificial intelligence, intelligent logistics and automatisation. Technology-based care is an important element to secure care, welfare and quality of live for seniors and disabled people.

The webinar is part of a series of activities supporting small and medium sized enterprises (SME’s) to bring Danish healthtech and digital care to the Scottish market. Danish Healthtech supports companies from Denmark to collaborate with Scottish Development International (SDI), and provides a structured path guiding the companies from initial introduction to the Scottish market to in-depth market access knowledge.
SDI is the international arm of the Scottish Government and Scotland’s enterprise agencies, Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. SDI supports international investors in Scotland to set up and grow in Scotland. SDI provides insight to match Danish solutions with Scottish needs and challenges. This creates opportunities for the Danish companies to seek out collaboration with the Scottish health and care sector.
