Medicon Village on Tour: Workshop with focus on sustainability in Medtech and Life Science
Together with project partners Medeon, Medicon Village, Swecare and Sahlgrenska Science Park, NCSH has received Vinnova funding for a pre-study to be the basis for creating a vision to achieve the most sustainable healthcare in the world by 2030 and establish an arena for innovation, collaboration and communication of Swedish sustainable healthcare.
To increase the knowledge base and identify best practice solutions within medtech and life science, workshops will be held in four different cities in Sweden. The material collected through the workshops will be used to develop both a sustainability guideline for startups life sciences and a vision for sustainable healthcare. During the workshops we will both listen to presentations and hold a workshop discussing questions such as how companies within this field address sustainability today as well as what challenges and opportunities they are facing.
If you would like to give a presentation about your organisation's sustainability work (production process, design, use etc), please contact us as soon as possible.
