Workshop for the World’s most sustainable healthcare 2030

Sweden is generally seen as one of the leaders when it comes to sustainable healthcare globally. But so far sustainable solutions have mainly been connected to areas such as buildings, energy and hazardous substances. To fully encompass all aspects and to develop  sustainable healthcare as a Swedish innovation and export stronghold, Medtech and Life Science must be included and explored further. Come and give your input at our workshop!

Together with project partners (Sahlgrenska Science Park with partners from Inn2Health, included), TEM and the Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare have received Vinnova funding for a pre-study to create a basis for 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 companies and solutions, four workshops will be held in four different cities in Sweden. The material collected through the workshops will be used to develop both a guideline and a vision for how we can become the best country in regards to sustainable healthcare.

We hope that you would like to join us to develop and explore the potential of sustainable healthcare as a strategic export area for Swedish life science companies.

If you would like to make a presentation about your organizations sustainability work (production process, design, use etc), please get in touch with asa.lindstrom@sahlgrenskasciencepark.se as soon as possible.
