Goals 

Business Finland´s goal is to make Finland a pioneer in the personalised healthcare field, creating a new type of healthcare platform, leveraging Finnish data warehouses and promoting business growth.

The preparatory work has identified the Finnish business area for health and wellbeing as well as the actors and their needs, and what kind of measures will be expected from the program.

Benefits

One of the megatrends of health care is that the treatment is transformed from mass-oriented care towards individual care. Identifying individual effects through, for example, genetic research enables the move from "one disease – one drug" -thinking in the development of medicines into identifying the individual effects of treatment. Personalised medicine gives you the opportunity to anticipate and prevent diseases as well as find the right care at the right time to the right people.

The Business Finland personalised health program supports Finnish innovation and top-level research and creates new business around personalised healthcare area, promotes growth and renews and creates new business life. The program also helps growth companies to raise venture capital and R&D funding, grows new know-how and attracst international venture capital, R&D and business units to Finland.
