Validé is hosting one cluster

Innovation is increasingly taking place in collaboration between companies, customers, suppliers and knowledge communities. Validé is hosting the healthcluster, and is partner with five others. That´s valuable network.

Norwegian Smart Care Cluster

NSCC is a cluster with more than 280 members, mostly private companies but also municipalities/government institutions as participants. The cluster has its origins in the Stavanger region, but our members are now from all over Norway and internationally. In November 2019 NSCC became an AranePro-cluster with five more years of work and mission.

NSCC established offices in Bergen (VIS) and Agder in 2019. The cluster's mission is to facilitate members to work together so that they can better and faster succeed in commercializing new solutions and selling healthcare and welfare technology solutions and services both for the private and public market, in Norway, the Nordic countries and internationally.

The cluster and Validé runs together the Living Lab test facilities: Norwegian Smart Care Lab

Norwegian Smart Care Lab (NSCL) is an international test center and Living Lab for welfare technology. ​The purpose of the lab is to assist the players in the development, implementation and use of welfare technology so we can speed up the process from idea to market. A Living Lab tests products and solutions in real environments together with users.

Norwegian Smart Care Lab can assist its customers in the entire innovation process. The lab is a resource center for companies that develop new solutions, and also for the partners who want to put the solutions into use.

Why do we need NSCLab?
The welfare technology market is new and immature. As a result, many complex challenges arise that affect a wide range of actors - everything from hospitals, the municipal health service and private companies, to research and authorities. Entering the market with the right solutions is difficult. It can be challenging to get the solutions tested in a good way.

New ways of delivering health services are essential for a sustainable health and care sector. Within the technological area, there is new possibilities. There are many technical, practical and legal obstacles that must be overcome before solutions can be put into use on a large scale.

In the Norwegian Smart Care Lab, we have methodology and service offerings for the verification of products, prototypes and product ideas. Our services contribute to products and solutions being developed and commercialized more quickly.

We do this by ensuring that the solutions are tested and adapted to the customers' requirements and needs. At the same time, we ensure that the product or service satisfies laws, standards and norms.

Marit B. Hagland is head the Norwegian Smart Care Lab. Get in touch today and we'll discuss what we can do for you.
