Health IT SME development in the Baltic Sea Region: Presentation of session at Life Sciences Baltics 2018/ScanBalt Forum track
A recent survey of Health IT SME’s in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) has pointed out better access to financing and better market access as pivotal for their development. In addition only a minority have collaboration with Public Health Authorities responsible for prevention measures and a major customer for new technologies.
The session organised by BaltCityPrevention discusses how Health IT companies, venture capital and Public Health Authorities can collaborate to overcome these short comings in the pursuit of the Baltic Sea Region as one development site and open market for Health IT products and services.
The session will have short pitches from Health IT companies, venture capital and Public Health Authorities followed by a round table discussion with focus on participatory involvement of the audience.
In advance of the session the BSR health and life science community will be invited to propose questions online. The best are selected by the session organisers and will be raised by the moderator.
