The Capital Region: AI Initiative for Start-ups

Strengthening the health sector and creating growth with new technologies



The Capital Region of Denmark has a new goal: to be one of the five most attractive hubs in the world for developing health technologies. To that aim, an AI initiative for start-ups has taken off as a collaboration between the Capital region, DTU Science Park, DTU Compute, DTU Skylab, Nordic AI, and the Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster. However, there are many questions that must be answered if we want to reach this goal:

  • How do we want to integrate AI in the health sector?
  • What does the ecosystem look like?
  • What can the capital region alongside the collaborative partners offer in this AI Initiative?

Therefore, we invite you to join us in dialogue and ideation about which actions need to be taken to create an exciting and well-functioning ecosystem to place the Capital region as one of the most attractive hubs in the world to develop products/services based on AI


Representatives from start-ups/spin-outs, small and medium enterprises, and larger companies which have activities in the AI field; researchers, students and other health professionals who are interested in AI
