Stavanger (Norway): More than 200 healthcare executives, scientists, politicians, and technology leaders are expected to meet at the third edition of the annual 37°C Health Tech conference being organised in Stavanger on 17-18 June 2019.
The conference speakers will discuss emerging technologies and innovations that will significantly improve health, increase life expectancy, and ultimately reshape the way healthcare works.
The conference is supported by Norway Health Tech, Stavanger Kommune, Research Council of Norway, Oslo Cancer Cluster, and other industry leaders.
Reaching an estimated 50 billion NOK ($5.74 billion) in revenue, the Norwegian healthcare industry is expected to double its turnover every 9 years. This has led to the health sector becoming a leader in entrepreneurship with 10% of Norway’s startups in the industry.
This was a key finding in Helsenæringens verdi report, presented each year to show the positioning of the health industry in Norway and allowing the industry to explore development opportunities for research and innovation.
“Technology and healthcare experts need to speak and work together to quickly find and solve the problems that need solutions in the healthcare industry. 37 °C Health Tech is one of the few global healthcare and technology conferences that gives entrepreneurs, healthcare companies, doctors and politicians the opportunity to get to know each other, discuss and work together,” said Arne Hansson Rannestad, founder and managing director of 37 °C Health Tech.
“As a result of the two previous editions of 37 °C Health Tech, several Norwegian companies are today entering international markets with their innovative technologies,” added Rannestad. Speakers of the 37 °C Health Tech include Henrik Lund, CEO, Regenics; Kathrine Myhre, CEO, Norway Health Tech; Bent Høie, Norwegian Minister, Norwegian Ministry of Health & Care; Erik M Hansen, CEO, Helse Vest IKT AS; James Sargent, Managing Partner, RQR Partners; Christine Sagen Helgø, Mayor, Stavanger.
