Ecosystem for health innovation

A room full of professionals with the common vision of raising awareness of the health innovation in Aarhus. This became the basis for a new ecosystem that will unify players in the healthcare industry in a joint branding collaboration in the western part of Denmark.

The Aarhus area and the entire Central Denmark Region aim at being more professionally attractive and internationally known. The partnership will also accommodate the challenges of an ageing population and a higher need for health care solutions in Denmark.

- In recent years we have been considered the Silicon Valley of health innovation. We have strong partners such as Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital and long-standing traditions for public and private partnership collaborations, which makes it possible for health innovation to grow even bigger, says Henrik Jespersen, Senior Vice President, Systematic.

The purpose of the new ecosystem is to attract even more investments, international businesses, start-ups, students, researchers, developers, and other professional talents to the Aarhus area and the Central Jutland region, which already has a strong position in health innovation.
