The BioMedical Design Novo Nordisk Foundation Fellowship Programme is the name of the new talent and continuing education programme that aims to put Denmark on the global map in the field of knowledge-based start-ups in the healthcare sector.

Over the next five years, 64 highly educated talented people from a wide variety of professions will undertake a programme that will prepare them for working with healthcare innovation across industries, fields of study and sectors. The target groups are primarily researchers, business people, engineers and medical doctors who have the curiosity and courage to grapple with new interdisciplinary collaborations.

INNO-X Healthcare, Aarhus University has taken the initiative takers for the ambitious programme which is a collaboration between the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen as well as all five Danish regions. The regions take turns making hospitals available so that participants in the programme have the opportunity to make observations, identify needs in everyday practice and develop relevant solutions.
