Data as the New Currency – the Nordics As World Leaders on Health Data

Super Session 1

11:00 - 12:15

The Nordic countries hold a unique position. With decades worth of health data covering more than 27 million people, we have the possibility to become a world-leading health innovation hub for the benefit of all individuals, patients, and global society. However, in order to realize this ambition, we must cooperate to better align, integrate, and use our health data in a protected and patient-centric way that also supports industry participation. In turn, industry holds a reciprocal requirement to protect our data, and to articulate & address their role in creating societal value. If we open up to greater collaboration, we can learn from each other and overcome the challenges together. In this session, leaders from across the Nordic Region and life science ecosystem will share their views on successful collaboration models related to health data as a driver for innovation and development, with recommendations for joint action.
