Norway Health Tech has visited Canada as part of the delegation of the minister of health and care, Bent Høie.
At the visit in Canada, the minister of health and care initiated the signing of a letter of intent between the Canadian cluster Hamilton Synapse Life Science Cluster (Synapse) and Norway Health Tech. The agreement between the two clusters aims to identify and accelerate opportunities for collaboration between Norwegian and Canadian health tech companies, hospitals, test facilities and researchers in the coming months. Both Synapse and Norway Health Tech will provide non-financial support to facilitate market entry efforts, including facilitating introductions and connections with key stakeholders in their respective clusters.
“We are truly excited to sign this letter of intent and to contribute to further strengthening of the Canada-Norway cooperation,” says CEO of Norway Health Tech, Kathrine Myhre. “This is just a start of what we can accomplish with two major clusters joining forces. I am very excited about the future.”
Several Norwegian companies have already started, with Ably Medical being in the lead. They have signed agreements with four Canadian hospitals that are ready to test their innovative hospital bed.
