BlueHealth Prize

Win 50.000 Sek

In the long term, we will have self-driving cars and connected homes that detect an accident before it happens. But things are things. We must not forget ourselves. Most things point to our health being the next area that will entail large costs – for both insurance companies and society.

Many of today’s illnesses are preventable and the best is of course if we can stay healthy. And that is where new technology will play a crucial role. That is why we as a bank and insurance company already work with a number of health promotion services – but more are needed. By having a prize in eHealth, we want to promote the good initiatives that are being taken and at the same time stimulate an increased entrepreneurial spirit in the area.

Sweden ICT tar våra ekosystem ut i Europa

För att säkra Europas konkurrenskraft och nytta inom digitalisering gör EU med programmet Digital Europe en stor satsning där en del är att etablera ett nätverk med Europeiska Digitala Innovations Hubbar (EDIH). EDIHerna ska hjälpa småföretag och offentlig sektor i sin digitala transformation av processer, produkter och tjänster. Science Park-samarbetet Sweden ICT är en plattform som stärker Sveriges position som ICT-nation – nu har man som en av femton svenska hubbar utsetts av Vinnova och Regeringskansliet att gå vidare till EU:s EDIH-urvalsprocess.

Ny testmiljö inom framtidens industri

Nu finns det en ny testmiljö inom Industri 4.0 på Blekinge Tekniska Högskola där det går att uppleva, experimentera och demonstrera framtidens industri genom smarta maskiner. Det nya labbet, Cyber Physical Lab, är placerat vid Institutionen för Maskinteknik och är ett av resultaten från Test-arena projektet inom IoT som Blue Science Park drivit tillsammans med BTH, Volvo Cars (Olofström) och Telenor Connexion.
