Is Scotland your next new market?

Four activities in the first half of 2020 focus on the Scottish market for healthcare and health ITC. Get in-depth market access knowledge and explore the opportunities on a market calling for digitalisation and smart care.

The Scottish healthcare system is challenged due to an ageing population. Along with increasing healthcare expenses and an urgent lack of care staff, Scotland calls for new reforms and improvements in efficiency through digitalisation and smart care. 

In the first half-year of 2020, Danish Healthtech offers four activities that will support small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) to bring Danish health tech and digital care to the Scottish market. From the initial introduction to the Scottish market to in-depth market access knowledge and support to collaborate with Scottish Development International (SDI).

The SDI supports international investors in Scotland to set up and grow in Scotland and provides insight to match Danish solutions with Scottish needs and challenges. SDI creates opportunities for Danish companies to seek out collaboration with the Scottish health and care sector.

The activities lead you through a knowledge transfer funnel giving you 

  • Insight into needs and demands in Scottish health and care sector
  • Facts about the Scottish market for health and care technology
  • Networking with Scottish and Danish companies and potential partners in Scotland
