Radical Health Festival Helsinki 2023

June 12 @ 09:00 June 14 @ 17:00

European healthcare is slowly collapsing – unless we act now. Radical Health Festival Helsinki on 12-15 June 2023 brings together a unique interdisciplinary community of like-minded digital healthcare visionaries aiming to revolutionize modern healthcare and make it sustainable once again. This mission is possible only by innovating new, groundbreaking concepts and technologies that challenge the conservative and ineffective methods of our current healthcare system.

Themes of Radical Health Festival Helsinki are AI, cybersecurity, innovation, mental health, climate health, active aging, telehealth, and digital maturity.

These themes are also promoted by the Health Capital Helsinki (HCH) cluster, which is built on the strong science campuses in the Helsinki region. HCH brings together local organisations in health and life sciences, as well as in health technology and social and health care. Through the cluster, the HUS Helsinki University Hospital, the Cities of Helsinki and Espoo, the University of Helsinki, Aalto University, and the Metropolia and Haaga-Helia Universities of Applied Sciences aim to achieve considerable growth in health-sector expertise and related business.

Finland has a lot to offer, as we are among the leading countries in the field of digitalisation and innovation in the health sector.

Helsinki has made sustained efforts to develop future welfare services with start-ups and business partners, including piloting new digital services for the social and health care sector. Helsinki’s goal is to provide a city-wide test platform for testing, developing, piloting and scaling innovations. Together with RDI networks, sustainable investors and experts, the city can achieve solutions to global challenges. Events as Radical Health Festival has an important role in this work.

“Together with our partners, we are constantly looking for new opportunities to offer Helsinki residents new digital services that enable us to improve the availability of services and support self-care options. The Radical Health Festival Helsinki is a great way for us to network with professionals in the field and to hear about new opportunities in digital services. We definitely want to be among the forerunners in the use of digital services”, says Juha Jolkkonen, the executive director of the social services, health care and rescue services division of the city of Helsinki.


Enabling ground-breaking concepts for health sector

Radical Health Festival Helsinki offers participants an interesting programme, while its exhibition offering simultaneously makes it a strong commercial platform for meetings between investors, buyers and solution providers. The goal is to enable new, ground-breaking concepts and technologies for the health sector.

“Radical Health Festival Helsinki brings together European professionals in digital health. We see the event as an opportunity to strengthen the cooperation between companies, researchers and the entire health sector ecosystem, and to support startups and promote the internationalisation of their business. Finland has a lot to offer, as we are among the leading countries in the field of digitalisation and innovation in the health sector”, says Jussi Kivikari, the Messukeskus business manager in charge of the event.

The event is organised by the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre and an international healthcare thought leader and event organiser éditohealth.
