Partnerships and collaboration

We gather expertise to drive innovation within a broad range of areas. We establish and support collaborations between patients, industry, academia and other care providers.

Collaboration is key

The hospital staff is at the core of the development of tomorrow’s healthcare services, but we cannot do it by ourselves. We partner with leading academic institutions, industry partners and other care providers with the approach that together we can reach further. It is also important to allow patients to become active participants in the developmental process.

Shaping the future of healthcare together

Through collaboration with various parties who impact the patient journey through the healthcare system, we create insights and opportunities to accelerate the pace of innovation and together drive the development for the health services of tomorrow.

Our joint efforts result in safer and more effective treatment, better equipment, smarter healthcare processes and more cost-effective interventions.
