Life Data Challenge

Powering public data to shape future health

Does your company have an idea for a new business model which can flourish based on public Danish health data – then this challenge is for you!

Denmark’s Ministry of Business is launching the Life Data Challenge in collaboration with the Danish Design Centre and Digital Hub Denmark. The Life Data Challenge invites companies from all over the world to submit ideas on how Danish health data can be used in the development of new business models that create value for both people and businesses. Danish health data is widely acknowledged to be among the best in the world due to Denmark’s decades-long tradition of registering and journaling patient cases.

All companies with a great idea for shaping the future of health can participate in this challenge. This includes small and medium-sized companies as well as large corporations, preferably with experience in working with data in the field of health.

Perhaps you are with a small company that sees the possibilities and challenges of working with quality health data. You may have worked on a solution for a long time, but never had the chance to take it to the next level. Or perhaps you are exploring a new business area where Danish health data could be the gamechanger.
