Health Meetings at the Upgraded Life Festival & Nordic Health Investment Day May 31 – June 1, Helsinki (at Biomedicum & Cablefactory).
Meetings with companies and research institutes already active or interested in Asian cooperation in the consortia being facilitated by ICT Alliance. In addition to senior wellbeing and rehabilitation and health games the prospective areas include integrated care and personalized health and wellbeing that match Tekes and Finpro programs in the area.
Health is one of the focus areas in 2016-2017 for ICT Alliance. The Finnish companies and institutes are interested in China together with other East and South-East Asian markets. Some in ICT Alliance focus areas, like HUR in rehabilitation, have already been successful with their business in the region and looking to extend their offering. Next steps were discussed with HUR, Metropolia and STM representatives, among other, and some of the companies (e.g Medanta, Orion Diagnostica) have already been involved in ICT Alliance facilitated events in China. In addition, the personalized medicine and digital hospital solutions are very potential area for Finland and ICT Alliance is looking opportunities to establish cooperation in the “big data” based solutions in China and Singapore during 2016 to support these activities.
