The world's most sustainable healthcare 2030: Workshop Umeå


Invitation workshop Umeå - May 28

Vinnova green payoff EN RGB

Workshop with focus on sustainability in Medtech and Life science - Umeå 28/5

Together with project partners Medeon, Medicon Village, Swecare and Sahlgrenska Science Park, NCSH has recieved Vinnova funding for a pre-study to be the basis for creating a vision to achieve the most sustainable healthcare in the world by 2030 and establish an arena for innovation, collaboration and communication of Swedish sustainable healthcare. In Umeå we collaborate with Region Västerbotten. 

Three workshops have been held in different cities in Sweden to increase the knowledge base and identify best practice solutions within Medtech and Life science. This workshop will be the last within this project. The material collected through the workshop will be used to develop both a sustainability guideline for startups Life sciences and a vision for sustainable healthcare. During the workshop we will both listen to presentations and hold a workshop discussing questions such as how companies within this field address sustainability today as well as what challenges and opportunities they are facing. 

This event will be held in Swedish
