All Singapore Initiatives

Nordic Health


Nordic countries and Singapore share a lot of similar challenges when touching upon areas such as healthcare, the aging population, a limited number of hospital beds, chronic diseases, and the need for improved patient experiences. The Nordic countries have a history of effective and innovative digital healthcare solutions, products, and tested platforms which can be used as great scaling opportunities for Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Nordic Innovation House – Nordic Health theme will encourage and support these Nordic initiatives to expand their foothold in Singapore and Southeast Asia. In 2019, Nordic Innovation House Singapore (NIH-SG) share the mission to support other Nordic MedTech and HealthTech delegations with its core partners from Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland.
