Data and innovation will grow personalised medicine in Finland

The secure aggregation of data from different sources could potentially benefit the health technology field in Finland. Here in this short blog and video, Minna Hendolin, Director at Business Finland explains why personalised medicine and gene technology is central to a new personalised health initiative.

Business Finland is preparing a personalised health programme that makes use of Finnish innovation and top-level research that creates new business around individualised healthcare platforms.

The programme will also help growth companies raise venture capital and R&D funding as well as developing new knowledge and attracting international venture capital and business units to Finland.

We hope that this ecosystem will grow and that new companies will join us to work more effectively in healthcare and well-being.
