About Access & Acceleration
Both German and Danish healthcare sectors are confronted with challenges such as the demographic change, shifting treatment requirements and rising costs. To meet these challenges and develop new innovative ideas, technologies and products in the healthcare sector, the continuous exchange between companies, hospitals and research institutions is of great importance.
With its interdisciplinary approach, the Access & Acceleration project aims to establish a cross-border platform that will enable key players in the health sector to connect and cooperate with each other to initiate innovative processes.
Stages of the innovation process
To effectively utilise the potential of the two different healthcare systems and to support projects that are already further advanced, the project partners consider the different stages of the innovation process:
This stage is about the genesis of new ideas within the healthcare sector and about fostering innovation activities by companies in the German-Danish border region. In this stage, the project will involve patients and experts from the regional healthcare sector as well.
The project partners create concepts for developing products as well as offers and test them in two pilot projects.
The project partners identify possible market barriers that can arise during the introduction of new technical solutions and develop strategies that facilitate the market launch.
