Zahnräder mit unterschiedlichen Komponenten greifen ineinander

The German-Danish border region has a multitude of competences and resources to develop new innovative ideas, technologies and products in the health sector. In order to use the existing innovation potential from the two different health systems effectively, the necessary competences and actors must be identified, integrated and cooperation accelerated. This requires a cross-border innovation environment that provides actors with excellent methodological competence for controlling innovation processes and involves users and stakeholders along the innovation cycle.

The ACCESS & ACCELERATION project is meeting this challenge by

  • building an innovation platform,
  • creating access to competencies and
  • developing a joint service portfolio and knowledge platform to support innovation processes.

Thus, the project partners support the development of new ideas in the healthcare sector, test the product/offer development within two pilots and deal with the framework conditions for market entry. From this they will develop methods and best-practice examples for the integration of companies, researchers and students.

The project is funded within the framework of the EU programme Interreg Deutschland-Danmark. Six partner organisations work together for a total of 36 months and have a total budget of around 2.9 million euros.

DSN supported the application process and is responsible for the project and financial management as well as the project communication.
