Health and Healthcare is one of VINNOVA's strategic areas. Health and Healthcare deals with finding new solutions to meet the challenges which Sweden (like all industrial countries) faces, with a rapidly increasing number of elderly citizens.
More and more people are living longer and through medical advances, diet and exercise, keeping themselves fit and vital. A generation of elderly people which is better informed, healthier and in stronger financial shape will demand more and buy higher quality care, services and homes.
The key areas identified by VINNOVA are: services within health and social care, the link between health, climate and environment and the healthcare sector as a production system.
