Data driven solutions for clinical research and development: Flanders-Nordics matchmaking event, online

Flanders, the northern, Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, is home to one of Europe’s most innovative life-sciences ecosystems. The Government of Flanders aims to strengthen the relations with the Nordic countries and as part of this strategy a Technology & Science Counselor, Maarten Lambert, has been appointed to help build connections between the Nordic and Flemish health tech ecosystems.

Flanders Investment & Trade has partnered with Upgraded to help build bridges between the Nordic and Flemish regions. Last year a dozen of companies from Belgium were brought to the Finnish online HealthTech event, Health100, pitching their solutions to the Finnish audience. Now we want to enhance the collaboration, and emphasize one of the biggest challenges in the development of new Life Science solutions, and the new possibilities that arose after the lockdown.

The matchmaking event is organized by Flanders Investment & Trade and Upgraded – Association of Finnish Health Startups and co-hosted by Oyster Ventures.

The goal is to give an overview of novel solutions of clinical research and development and ways of market´s adaptation towards the restrictions and challenges caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. This provides a possibility for various stakeholders in the area to collaborate with each other and build connections across borders. We invite companies from the full Digital Health landscape to connect and discover new opportunities for collaboration across different regions.

Time: 23 September 2021, 10:00 – 12:30 (Finnish time)
Place: Online

Participation in this event is free of charge but requires registration.
