The registration for the Nordic Independent Living Challenge is now open

  • Published 05/02/2015
Do you have a solution that can make it possible for elderly and people with disabilities to live independently in their own home – at the same time making the work easier and more efficient for care professionals?

The five Nordic capitals and Nordic Innovation have launched this competition to boost innovation and collaboration in the welfare technology industry, and provide access to a joint Nordic market.


Participants will get help turning their ideas into real products and test them with real users. They will get the possibility to introduce their solution to a growing Nordic market and collaborate with the capital cities – and to meet and network with fellow Nordic colleagues in the field.


The Nordic Independent Living Challenge is open for everyone in the Nordic region – from established welfare solution providers to students and startups. Elderly and disabled people with an innovative spirit are also encouraged to sign up.


The main prize is 1 million NOK. In addition, there is a 200.000 NOK cross-Nordic collaboration award and a 100.000 NOK student award.


The registration is open until 18 March 2015, which you can do at the competition website.
