Future Sustainable Hospitals: Sweden-Finland Knowledge Exchange


Banner 27 september 2022

Welcome to a joint Swedish-Finnish exploration of collaboration for sustainable healthcare, at the Finnish Embassy in Stockholm!

Europe is investing in a greener and more digital society for a more sustainable and resilient future post-pandemic. The healthcare sector and hospitals in particular are in urgent need of modernizing to meet the future demographics challenges, and to create growth.

The demand for sustainable healthcare has never been higher. Sweden and Finland are two nations in the forefront in technology and culture in designing, building and equipping the future hospitals. Both have well-established green solutions and healthcare systems closely integrated with sustainability goals. In this seminar, we learn from each other with the goal of creating stronger Nordic offers and branding globally.

The event is a collaboration between Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare (NCSH) in Sweden and Business Finland.
