The themes of the Radical Health Festival Helsinki are artificial intelligence, mental health, the effects of climate change on health, active ageing, cybersecurity, innovation, and the digitalisation of the health sector.

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 medicine, biosciences, nutritional and environmental sciences, as well as in health technology and social and health care. Through the cluster, the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, 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.

Helsinki also has a strong presence in the steering group of the event. The steering group is chaired by the executive director of the social services, health care and rescue services division of the city of Helsinki, Juha Jolkkonen. 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.

“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 the executive director, Juha Jolkkonen.

“The 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 start-ups 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 Radical Health Festival Helsinki offers participants an interestingprogramme, while its exhibition offering simultaneously makes it a strong commercial platform for meetings between investors, buyers and solution providers.
