Strongholds and Qualities of the Nordic Health Tech Ecosystem

An analysis of positions of strengths of Nordic health tech companies.
  • 06/03/2004 SMEs and the new role of academic research in four Nordic countries

    A summary review of the main findings of the study shows that while the existing and proposed policy reforms have been extensive, there remain a number of important gaps. There are important differences in what kinds of recommendations can work in the respective countries and the country studies provide ample detail on the particular situation in this respect.
  • 03/03/2004 High tech spinn offs - limited impact!

    The project studies the creation and performance of new establishments and enterprises in the Nordic countries, utilising administrative register data compiled by the national statistical agencies on enterprises, establishments and employees. Among the many different aspects brought up during the study, the central theme concerns how one specific category of new establishments perform, namely those that can be identified as “high-tech spin-offs”.
  • 03/03/2004 Exploratory Study for Brain Disease Therapy

    The goal of the project was to set up a Nordic consortium that would plan a new approach in studying brain disease therapies and mechanisms. The indication areas was restricted to four major diseases namely stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and brain trauma.
  • 03/03/2004 Conference summary - "The Nordic Region as a frontrunner in Research and Innovation"

    ”The Nordic region as a frontrunner in research and innovation” was the theme of the conference hosted by the Nordic Council of Ministers, Iceland (its chair) and the Nordic Innovation Centre on 10 June 2004. Delegates included decision- and policymakers in the Nordic innovation system. An important aim of the conference was to discuss and generate feedback to the newly presented policy document, ”Proposals for a collaborative Nordic programme on innovation policy 2005-2010” (”The Book of Innovation”).
  • 03/03/2004 Concrete for the Environment - a Nordic Network

    The main objective was to establish a permanent Nordic Network that will create a common understanding of and formulation of criteria for sustainable concrete structures, promote the development and use of sustainable concrete structures and finally promote the use of concrete for the benefit of the environment
  • 03/03/2004 Commercialisation services for small and innovative companies

    Since the project start Nordic BIC Forum has taken its position as part of Nordic innovation infrastructure. During project years, the network has been expanded and this has made it possible for new members to join the Forum and benefit from it.
  • 01/03/2004 Art and Design Universities - Innovation Network (preparatory survey)

    The purpose of this preliminary survey has been to review the current status of innovation activities of art and design institutions in the Nordic and Baltic region. First of all, the survey aims to highlight the innovation supporting services provided by the most important art and design universities in Nordic and Baltic countries. Secondly, the fact how design is integrated to the national innovation systems is analysed from each country’s point of view.
  • 28/02/2004 The potential in e-business has been far from exploited

    Over 4,300 enterprises – with at least 10 employees – in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden have participated in this survey of E-business 2003. E-business covers all business applications of internet technology, the purpose of which is to improve, change or promote efficiency in, the enterprise and organisation. E-business therefore includes all communication via the internet; internally in the enterprise via an intranet and externally via an extranet with customers, suppliers and partners.
  • 28/02/2004 Productivity studies in Nordic building- and construction industry

    The background for the project is that there in all Nordic countries has been an increased attention to the question of productivity in building and construction industry (B&C industry) in the later years.
  • 28/02/2004 Wood components in steel and concrete buildings

  • 28/02/2004 Non-Destructive Testing Methods for Integrity Determination of Concrete Structures

    Today, it is well recognised that methods that can be used to do assessments of existing structures without the need for destructive tests has the potential to become increasingly important tools as a part of work being invested to structures. The companies that offer these methods, however, experience difficulties to sell services that rely on such methods.
  • 28/02/2004 Inclusion Engineering and Grain Size Control of Steels - INGROS

  • 25/02/2004 Monitoring corrosion in district heating systems

    Corrosion problems in district heating systems in the Nordic countries are rare. Nonetheless, corrosion is occasionally still responsible for leak problems and an important factor for process control and asset management. Thus, corrosion should be monitored as other important process parameters such as pH, conductivity and dissolved oxygen.
  • 25/02/2004 Nordic Biofibre network established

    The Nordic Biofibre Network - has so far created much better cooperation between Nordic industrial and academy actors in several bio-fibre branches. That is especially true for branches like pulp and paper and packaging. Representatives of these branches have been very active in the network. There are indications and the potential is large, that the network in the future may contribute very much to an improvement of the international business climate for small and semi-large Nordic companies.
  • 25/02/2004 Prototyping and low volume production of sheet metal components

    The project aimed to clarify the situation of sheet metal forming technologies for low volume production in the Nordic countries and EU and map the industrial demands on the field.
  • 25/02/2004 FE-Design 2003

    Improved Usage of High Strength Steel by an Effective FE-based Design Methodology for Fatigue Loaded Complex Welded Structures The main goal of the projects is to improve the reliability and consistency and reduce the time and effort required to design complex welded structures that are subject to alternating loads. This has been achieved by developing and verifying integrated FEA and appropriate fatigue resistance data including weld quality.
  • 23/02/2004 Nordic Health Technology Forum - Seminar

    The main task of this pre-project was to prepare and carry out Nordic Health Technology Seminar in cooperation with Nordic Industrial Fund to get an overview on State of Art in the field, indentify and analyse the needs of SMEs, define goals, projects and ideas for cooperation and deside on creation of Nordic Health Technology Forum.
  • 07/03/2003 Nordic SMEs and Regional Innovation Systems

  • 06/03/2003 Nordic Cyclodextrin Network

    The objective of the project was to increase collaboration between Nordic industrial and academic partners in the cyclodextrin research area.
  • 06/03/2003 How to develop and monitor your company's intellectual capital

    This publication provides you with a sample of articles that give an overview of what Intellectual Capital (IC) is and how you can use it for developing and monitring your own company’s IC.
