We invite you to an open innovation workshop with opportunity to receive funding for your ideas. We welcome cross-sectorial ideas coming from Aerospace, Energy, ICT, Bio Medical and more.

We believe that the solution to a problem or challenge may well be in “The Other Guy’s Toolkit”. Address the challenges of Hypothermia and Uremia and contribute towards tomorrow´s healthcare.

There is an opportunity to get funding worth up to 180.000 EUR Cross4Health, 60.000 EUR per SME and 50.000 EUR per SME in INNOLABS of direct cash funding and innovation services.

The workshop is facilitated by the Municipality of Bergen, where the aim is to bring together groups of entrepreneurs, startups, SME’s and health professionals, whom would otherwise not interact to transfer knowledge and technologies across industries to unlock the collaborative potential of Aerospace, Energy, ICT, Biotechnology and Medical devices for next-generation Healthcare solutions.
