Innovation-driven responses to the COVID-19 crisis

A Free Webinar, Tuesday September 29 16:00 – 17:30 Japan Time hosted by the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo and Healthcare DENMARK

The world face an unprecedented crisis in the COVID-19 pandemic and Denmark has not been spared. On February 27 the virus was confirmed to have spread to Denmark, followed by a countrywide lockdown from March 13 to April 15.
It is a race against time to keep the outbreak under control and ensure sufficient healthcare capacity to handle the excess number of COVID-19 patients. For some countries, where the healthcare system is already under extreme pressure, a race to increase capacity immediately, and for other countries, a race to plan ahead and ensure capacity, according to forecasts.
In this critical situation, public healthcare authorities, companies large and small and universities stand united to combine all resources to step up capacity to handle the crisis.
Sometimes a crisis can serve as a catalyst to innovation and in this webinar we will highlight and showcase some examples of medical innovation coming out of the pandemic.
Healthcare Denmark, a public-private partnership organization, will provide an overview of how the triple helix turned to innovation to create new solutions and leverage existing technologies to combat the pandemic.
In addition, we will hear from three companies who have leveraged their existing technologies to fight COVID-19.
