Webinar: Innovation-driven responses to the COVID-19 crisis

On Tuesday September 29, 2020, you have the exclusive opportunity to join a webinar focusing on how the Danish industry has responded to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar is scheduled at 16:00 – 17:30 Japan Time (9:00 – 10:30 CET) and hosted by the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo and Healthcare DENMARK.

The world faces an unprecedented crisis during 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 this webinar will highlight and showcase some examples of medical innovation coming out of the pandemic.

CEO of Healthcare DENMARK, Hans Erik Henriksen, will provide an overview of how the global pandemic has served as a catalyst for innovation and development of new solutions.

In addition, three companies will share their experiences on how they have leveraged their existing technologies to fight COVID-19.
