National innovation agenda for sustainable healthcare
The healthcare sector stands for a significant part of the GDP and the overall environmental impact. Meanwhile, there is a lack of a coordinated interaction between the sector’s stakeholders in terms of knowledge transfer, benefits from commercial opportunities and application of newly developed products and services.
The innovation agenda for sustainable healthcare is a collaboration project of TEM, Swecare and Lund University, financed by Sweden’s innovation agency Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency and the Swedish Research Council Formas.
Sustainable healthcare is a complex area that embraces a range of industries and research fields. Its stakeholders come from various branches, such as private and public healthcare, environmental technology, Life Science with good environmental performance, construction industry etc. With this variety of stakeholders, sustainable healthcare on the one hand faces certain obstacles, while on the other it has a big potential to act as a platform for the sector’s stakeholders.
The innovation agenda’s starting point is the stakeholder perspective. It shall provide different solutions to the challenges that exist in the area today. Moreover, it will point to the opportunities in the area that have a capacity to strengthen Sweden’s economic growth, employment and at the same time reduce environmental impacts of the healthcare.
