WELCOME TO THE LAND OF FUTURE HEALTH
Gateway to UK is a Team Finland activity which builds channels and networks between Finnish health technology SMEs and the health and social care markets in the United Kingdom. In 2016 approximately 20 companies, covering different areas of expertise from diagnostics and bioinformatics to digital solutions in healthcare, are taking part in the Gateway to UK activities. These activities include e.g. training and introductory visits as well as networking opportunities.
On September 5-8, the Gateway to UK delegation will travel to Manchester and exhibit their innovative products and solutions at the Health & Care Innovation Expo organized by NHS England. In addition to company presentations, the expo visitors will have the chance to follow presentations on various topics, including test beds and Finnish biobank expertise by Finnish health care expert such as Professor Olli Carpen.
