The Team Finland network is organizing a business delegation visit to Berlin, Germany on April 25-27, 2022. The visit is led by Dr. Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.

The German Federal Ministry of Health is taking significant measures to increase the grade of digitalization in the German healthcare system. During the Covid-19 pandemic the importance and need of digital health and modern digital systems became even more obvious than before. Now the German Federal Government will invest directly in the digital future of German hospitals. With the help of the €3 billion Hospital Future Fund, as part of German RRF funding, investments are channeled to a better digital infrastructure, modern emergency capacities and information security of hospitals.

This visit offers a great opportunity for Finnish companies to get better connected with the German digital health and wellbeing market and with new digital health customers and collaborators in Germany. This is a powerful means for you to drive your market presence in Germany, get new business and valuable contacts. The visit program includes participation at DMEA Trade Fair and Congress, Europe's leading event for the digitization of healthcare, which offers various modules of congress, training, networking, and the opportunity to make ideals contacts in the industry.

Join us for the Team Finland visit to Berlin and the DMEA Fair in April 2022!
