Way Forward -project results

Finland has identified its strength in four health ecosystem assets: medical research, health technology, health data and clinical co-creation. Now the Finnish health industry is inviting more investors into its innovative ecosystem, and boosting its SMEs’ export growth.

The global transformation of the health sector provides an opportunity for Finland to build a globally recognized healthcare innovation hub. Finpro’s research explores this opportunity and has identified the health industry key assets. Finpro has collaborated with 100 health industry organizations to formulate a joint goal and recommendations for the development of the Finnish healthcare ecosystem.

The health sector is shaped by global trends which drive the need for new approaches for care, opening up new commercial opportunities for the industry and for countries to create development hubs which combine several key competencies.

-  In Finland, we want to strengthen the growth-stimulating business environment that creates opportunities for foreign investment into Finnish companies and research. The aim is to make Finland a world-class healthcare innovation center, explains Finpro's Health sector director Nora Kaarela.

Finpro’s  Future Healthcare Innovation Environment of Finland -report provides lots of additional, concrete recommendations by the industry for the implementation of the Finnish Health Sector Growth Strategy.

The project was carried out together by Team Finland & EY using almost 100 Finnish top specialists as consultants.
