Nordic-Bavarian Partnering Workshop: Research and Innovation for Health, Hospitals and Integrated Care

Workshop Nordic Bavarian

Munich. On 7 November 2019, the Bavarian Research Alliance and Innovation Centre Denmark co-host a “Nordic-Bavarian Partnering Workshop” on research and innovation in the health and hospital sector. The event focuses on tailored networking and matchmaking of Bavarian scientists and small and medium sized enterprises with potential project partners from the Nordic region. We expect excellent Nordic scientists and representatives of small and medium-sized enterprises to participate in this workshop. Furthermore, a broad range of European and national funding programs for Nordic-Bavarian research projects in the health sector (including specific seed funding programs for the initiation of such projects) will be presented.

The workshop provides direct insights into healthcare solutions from the Nordic countries to Bavarian stakeholders as an inspiration for a direct dialogue and facilitating future cooperation. Key expertise of the Nordic partners is the profound experience in the areas of Digitalization, Emergency care, Personalized Care and Telehealth. These are the four “sector tracks” that permeate the modern Nordic hospital from prevention and diagnostics to treatment and rehabilitation.

The workshop participants can expect input on the following topics:

  • Overview of Horizon 2020 and forthcoming funding opportunities under Societal Challenge 1 (Health, demographic change and wellbeing)
  • Further (national) funding options for Nordic-Bavarian research projects
  • First-hand reports on successful Nordic-Bavarian collaborations (ESOTRAC2020, REACH2020, Biomax Informatics AG)
  • R&I in Horizon 2020: Policy context, recent achievements and up-coming funding opportunities, Saila Rinne, Head of Policy Sector, Unit H3-eHealth, Well-Being and Ageing, DG CONNECT, European Commission
  • Outlook to Horizon Europe – The upcoming European framework for research and innovation

Following the input session, you will have the chance to actively network with the attending participants from the Nordic region and kick off future collaborations. To make the matchmaking more sustainable we will provide information and assistance for specific seed funding programs for the initiation of Nordic-Bavarian projects.

Thursday, 7 November 2019, 9:00 to 15:00 hrs.
