Be part of it and bring in your ideas! The application period for this year's Baltic Sea Region Health Innovation Award (BSR HIA) starts now for all start-ups in the Baltic Sea Region and Ireland.

The BSR HIA is an international award for innovative ideas from companies in the healthcare industry, which will be presented at the National Conference on Health Economy.

The aim is to sustainably support the economic exploitation of ideas and inventions from the health industry in the Baltic Sea region.
