Accelerating health innovation with passion for collaboration

6 september, 2021

“Park Annual is a great way to gather people who share our ambition to accelerate health innovation and unlock new solutions to global health challenges,” says Marie Uddenmyr, Community Manager at GoCo Health Innovation City, the Main Sponsor for this year’s Park Annual event.

Why did GoCo decide to be a main sponsor for Park Annual 2020?
Sharing knowledge and perspectives has never been more important. Park Annual is a great way to gather people who share our ambition to accelerate health innovation and unlock new solutions to global health challenges. There cannot be enough initiatives to drive innovation.

How is GoCo contributing to stimulating innovation in life science?
The way we see it, innovation starts with an initial meeting. GoCo Health Innovation City provides a physical meeting place and our collaborative community platform, GoCo Arena, makes it easier for scientists, professionals, creatives and entrepreneurs to meet, interact and share knowledge.

What’s the most fun part of your job?
I am passionate about collaboration. During the first half of 2021, GoCo Arena has been bringing representatives from academia and industry together, resulting in a new collaborative community platform. Our first quarter had an initial focus on sports, exercise, and health. It is both amazing and inspiring to see how we are building bridges and facilitating conversations that are leading to new collaborations that have the potential to improve people’s lives. I have already seen it happen and there is more to come.

What’s next at GoCo?
There are many exciting things happening in all directions at GoCo, both within the community platform, GoCo Arena, as well as within mobility development and our next buildings at GoCo Health Innovation City. I recommend everyone to stay tuned by subscribing to our newsletters or following us on Instagram and LinkedIn.
