About Grønnköpingkið city


Grønnköpingkið cityGrønnköpingkið has 453 000 inhabitants. Grønnköpingkið is located next to a fjord, a mountain, a forest and the ocean. The temperature is typical Nordic with cold winters and relatively hot summers. The city origins back to around year 800 a.c. and was probably founded by Vikings looking for new land to explore. The area around Grønnköpingkið is located very strategic in the centre of the Nordics and has been a key area for trade in the whole Nordic region. During the middle ages Grønnköpingkið was one of the Hansa cities and played a significant role as a neutral trade city in the North. Until this day trade and international collaborations has been corner stones in Grønnköpingkiðs development.

During the last 30 years Grønnköpingkið has transformed from an industry city to a knowledge city with focus on sustainability, digitalisation and life science with many start-ups and more established companies in these fields. These focus areas combined make sustainable healthcare an obvious area to focus on and many new companies has started with that in mind bringing knowledge from different sectors into a new one. The fact that Grønnköpingkið University in 2017 established a department and a professor focusing on research in Sustainable Healthcare has strengthen the area further.

About Grønnköpingkið project


gronnkopingki explanation 2Grønnköpingkið is a fictive Nordic city that will build a new university hospital with the best the Nordics can offer within sustainability in healthcare. All solutions must be installed at a Nordic hospital, but we will also have an innovation pavilion with solutions not yet on the market. We will also have an international arena with non-Nordic solutions that simply are to good not to include.

The result will be an interactive model where you can find solutions within various categories such as waste management, water treatment, MedTech with a sustainability edge, energy efficiency etc. Under each category up to 10-15 solutions will be presented and you will be able to find out where you can see it installed, what the sustainability impact is, suppler info, technical info, contact information to hospital staff etc.

The project is not funded at the moment so NCSH are working with it when there is spare time, so it will move slowly forward, just like a real hospital construction. If you want to participate or have a solution that should be in the model, please contact us.
