One of the aims of Helsinki Brain & Mind (HB&M) is to facilitate researchers from different backgrounds to co-create and innovate in the neuroscience area. In 2020–2021, HB&M prepared a systematic health innovation ecosystem mapping in the Helsinki metropolitan area, offering an updated overview of the ecosystem. The health innovation ecosystem in the Helsinki metropolitan area is very lively and complex, and
HEALTH INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM IN THE HELSINKI METROPOLITAN AREA 2021
This report made by Dovile Kurmanaviciute (Innovation Agent at Helsinki Brain & Mind) presents an updated view of the health innovation ecosystem in the Helsinki metropolitan area that targets especially researchers and startups. The report has been carried out as part of a joint project, Helsinki Brain & Mind (HB&M), by the University of Helsinki, Aalto University and HUS Helsinki University Hospital. The development of Helsinki Brain & Mind has been funded by the European regional development fund (ERDF).
Innovation processes sometimes might be complicated since it depends on many variables such as who you are, where you invent and how far you are with your innovative idea. To clarify some bits of the innovation process, we prepared several innovation guides.
INVENTION DISCLOSURE QUICK-GUIDE PRESENTATION
This guide is based on Helsinki Innovation Services made guide and aims at helping researchers (primarily) and others to understand why it is important to report invention, how to do it and what is the benefit of it. The guide also provides several examples of ideas that would have a potential for commercialization.
INNOVATION PATH FINDER
This guide aims at quick question-based guidance for those people who feel a bit lost in the health ecosystem. Health ecosystem is complex and not always is clear, who in the ecosystem could support you right according to your needs. This guide is a development version, so we would be glad to get your feedback and improve it so, that it would serve you the best!
