Profile area Health Innovation
Sweden and the rest of the world are facing health challenges and it takes innovation and ingenuity to sustain and develop our health and welfare for the future. In this work, the Health Innovation profile area plays an important role.
On August 19–23, 2019, it is once again time for the Master and doctoral student summer course HISS, Health Innovation Summer School. The course takes the shape of a week-long summer school for Master and PhD students. The theme for this year is ”Health innovation as a process of ideation to implementation in complex healthcare ecosystems”.
Health concerns us all, and the health challenges that society is facing must be solved by collaboration between multiple societal actors.
Public organisations, industry, non-governmental organisations and representatives from different target groups need to contribute with different perspectives. The academic world has a big responsibility to produce and ensure knowledge regarding health challenges, the needs among target groups and prerequisites for different solutions. Halmstad University is working to take on this responsibility through research, education and collaboration.
Health Innovation is a profile area of interdisciplinary education and research that addresses health challenges through trans-disciplinary and value-creating research and education in collaboration with stakeholders in society.
The profile area is characterised by three principles. The innovations should be:
- needs-oriented, and create value for society,
- sustainable and applicable,
- developed in co-production with the final users and actors.
Health Innovation is one of the two University profile areas. The other is Smart Cities and Communities.
