Platform for Internationalisation: Energy and Climate Smart Healthcare

Through this project, a platform for internationalisation of sustainable and energy-efficient healthcare will be in place. A number of activities have been planned to:

- Create opportunities for energy efficient innovations to reach a global market
- Increase knowledge transfer and dissemination of information on energy efficient sustainable healthcare
- Identify methods and arenas where innovative companies within the field of sustainable healthcare can export sucessfully

The project is based on a prestudy where letters of intent have been written with innovation arenas in 4 countries: France, Italy, Israel and United Kingdom. A report on challenges when internationalising innovation clusters with focus on energy efficient healthcare has also been produced. Within this project, NCSH will focus on Europe as well as Canada, the U.S, China, India and the Middle East.

The project is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and started in December 2018. Also as a part of this project are the six international events arranged within the Future of Healthcare: Sustainable and Smart today project. These include: 

  • Kick off and high level meeting in Helsinki, Finland the 2nd of October 2019. 
  • Nordic delegation to conference in Montreal, Canada the 15th to the 16th of October 2019. 
  • Conference for sustainable healthcare in the Netherlands the 15th to the 17th of April 2020. 
  • Nordic Conference for Sustainable Healthcare in Copenhagen, Denmark, September 8 2020.
  • Online seminar together with Yale University in November 2020. 
  • Health100 and high level meeting in Finland 2020.

HUSCA - Boosting sustainable innovation with Nordic integrated health data

Together with a Nordic consortia we are focusing on sustainable healthcare innovation in relation to SDGs, Nordic integrated health data, healthcare providers, life science industry and other related industries. 

Together, we will envisioning what an innovative and connected Nordic region would look like if health data was shared seamlessly across public-private partnerships in the region. Shared health data plays into the circular economy, as well as clinical research, clinical trials, treatments, innovation- and development efforts means reduced friction and higher degrees of utilisation of expended resources.

Nordic Strategic Platform for Increased Export of Sustainable Healthcare Solutions

NCSH is one of around 15 members in the Nordic Innovation task force for export of health and welfare solutions. The project is an initiative by the Nordic Ministry Council and aims to unite and increase Nordic export of health-related services and products. Around three organisations from each member country (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland) represent different areas of health export and NCSH is added as a pan-Nordic actor.

Sustainable healthcare has been identified as one of four Nordic strongholds within Nordic health export together with Smart Digital Solutions, Welfare technology and Personalized care.This means that members in NCSH can look forward to increased efforts to expand the area of sustainable healthcare and projects that supports those efforts.

A first report from the task force has been published in 2018 and can be found here.

The most Sustainable Healthcare in the World 2030

SkärmklippVinnovaengTogether with project partners Medeon, Medicon Village, Swecare and Sahlgrenska Science Park, NCSH received 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.

The outputs of this project has lead to a more coherent view on sustainable healthcare and further clarified this interdisciplinary matter. The result will in the long run lead to increased export and reduced environmental impact from the healthcare sector. In order to fully encompass all aspects of sustainable healthcare, MedTech and life science have been addressed and included in the project.

To increase the knowledge base and identify best practice solutions within MedTech and life science, workshops have been held in four different cities in Sweden. The material collected through the workshops have been used to develop both a sustainability guideline for startups within life sciences, as well as a vision for sustainable healthcare.

Guideline - Sustainability in Life Science

The content of the guidline has been developed in collaboration with Medeon, Medicon Village, Sahlgrenska Science Park, Swecare and participants at 5 workshops around Sweden hosted by the projects partners and Innovation+ in Region Västerbotten. A number of interviews have been conducted with companies and other key stakeholders. In total a couple of hundred organisations have been involved in the process.
