Health Tuesday: E3 – excellence in pandemic response and enterprise solutions, online

Health Tuesday is a series of networking events addressing health and wellbeing themes. The event is organized by Business Finland on the first Tuesday of each month and it offers participants an excellent opportunity to discuss with health professionals, health tech companies, decision-makers, investors, and representatives of the public sector.

COVID-19 has shown how vulnerable societies all over the world are against pandemics. It has drastically restricted the everyday life of people, shut down important functions of society and business, and even caused regional lockdowns. There were practically no effective countermeasures to use, but what if such would be a place the next time? Improving economic and societal resilience to face future pandemics is the core mission of the E3 Co-innovation project.

The work already conducted in the preparative Co-Creation projects AIRCO, L2B, and TUPA has created a solid foundation to execute this work rapidly. The Co-Creation projects have developed new tools for simulation and experimental work related to virus aerosols.

If you want to learn more about this exciting and rapidly growing area of indoor health safety, join next Health Tuesday event.
