Welcome

Health Tech is one of society's most exciting emerging industries as it holds substantial promise for growth, prosperity and welfare. In addition, it also represents a healthcare solution for the growing size of society's population of pensioners. This makes Health Tech one of the most important issues in modern society. This conference aims at debating the challenges of integrating and fine-tuning Health Tech into modern society and how we might overcome these challenges in making health-tech a productive and highly beneficial part of the modern society.

 

The intersection of IT and Healthcare is highly interesting, emerging out of technological developments as well as new ways of organising healthcare services. The conference will focus on this intersection and the entrepreneurial potential it represents for start-ups in Denmark. Check out the possibilities in this description of the conference and join us on September 18th at CBS.” Jørgen Bardenfleth - Chairman at Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster & Symbion
