Summary description of the project:

EU health care sector spending ranges from 5-11% of regional GDP facing further increase due to demographic development & cost increase in drug & technology development. At the same time a paradigm shift occurs: health care is not only seen as a cost factor but also as a driver of economy & an important factor of employment. However health care is split into sectors which function separately: health care providers, enterprises, research institutions, regulatory & financing institutions. BSHR HealthPort aims at bridging the existing cross-sectoral gaps by involving the regional key actors in the value chain of health care innovations. Specifically BSHR HealthPort adresses following key bottlenecks: 1) Insufficient commercial exploitation of ideas proposed by health care researchers and practitioners 2) Procurement practices limiting access of innovative SMEs to the health care market 3) Insufficient innovation competencies of and cultural differences between the target groups

Key objectives

1) Set up cross-sectoral innovation market (“HealthPort”) involving all health care related sectors.

2) Promote SME business development and facilitate their access to the health care market by identifying cross-sectoral pilot cases and increasing SME access to financing.

3) Enhance innovation competencies of the involved actors with tailor-made cross-sectoral programmes

4) Develop regional innovation agendas and align them towards a BSR wide “health economy strategy” to improve healthcare by reducing costs and enhancing regional economic development.

BSHR HealthPort partners and associated organizations cover all health care related sectors and comprise expertise from triple helix organizations, public authorities, health care providers, industries, universities, financing institutions, as well as owners of health care providers. Their competence and experience allow effective and fast implementation of the project’s results across borders and between sectors.

Work packages & activities

- WP3 is designed to increase the cross-sectoral knowledge of all actors and improve the success ratio of technology transfer/business development by tapping into competence of regional networks, institutes and health care providers

- WP4 will deal with enhancing regional and BSR wide care market access for SMEs by offering support in procurement practises and matchmaking between health care providers and SMEs - WP5 focuses on increasing the case flow from health care practitioners to SMEs by installing a 2-stage HealthPort idea competition with involvement of financing institutions

- WP6 is dedicated to setting up an Innovation Agenda of the BSR Health Economy through the BSHR Advisory Board. The Agenda shall ensure sustainability of project results by cross-sectoral alignment with regional, national or BSR wide strategies.


Achievements of the project so far:

BSHR HealthPort forms an integrated and important part of the BSHR flagship project with the goal of Baltic Sea Region to become a globally leading and prosperous “Health Region”. To the end of the project HealthPort achieved the following results:
