Study trip to Germany (North-Rhine Westphalia)

Join us for a study trip to NRW, Germany, organized in collaboration with the German-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (AHK) and Norway Health Tech (NHT). The trip is designed for health tech companies who see Germany as their target market.

During the trip, participants will have the opportunity to meet with experts in the field of health tech and learn about the German healthcare system and the health tech market in NRW. Our partners in Germany have suggested possible activities, but the program will be tailored to the specific needs and interests of participating companies.

Some of the activities that may be included in the program are visits to hospitals, local health tech companies, and research institutions. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with representatives from the local health tech industry, KOLs, and industry associations.

The study trip will start in NRW on the 26th of September, with the option to continue on to a different region in Germany on the 28th of September.

The cost for participating in the study trip is 5000 NOK per company (for up to 2 persons, exclusive for NHT or NSCC members), with a 50% discount for companies in the Market Access Programme Germany 2023 at Norway Health Tech. While participants will have to cover their own costs for travel and accommodations, catering during the program will be provided.
