Welcome to this year’s last Health Business Breakfast networking event for Health and Life Science companies, OuluHealth ecosystem’s supporters, and health enthusiasts from the Oulu region. As we are approaching the Christmas season and the year 2023 is coming to an end, it is time to rejoice and think of all the good things we have been part of this year. OuluHealth has the pleasure to invite you to come together, listen to insights into the Oulu2026 program and its offering as well as enjoy the wonderful pre-Christmas spirit.

Oulu has been selected for the European Capital of Culture in 2026, which brings a variety of opportunities in terms of culture, education, visibility as well as business. The city has received the chance to strengthen its reputation as the perfect place for those who want to combine a successful career with modern culture and a relaxing private lifestyle. During the event, you will hear about the Oulu2026 programme and its offering for companies. You will also find out about Oulu-based Taikabox and the Oulu Dance Hack 2026.
