Innovation

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  offers many possibilities for  each innovation step: from the development of an innovative idea to the final innovation product. Below we have described some of the innovation activities carried out as part of HB&M.

To highlight all the different possibilities of the innovation ecosystem, HB&M created a comprehensive ecosystem mapping document. In the document, each organisation is introduced with an overview of their work. The document also specifically describes each player’s target group, as well as why and when one should get in touch with them. 

Since the health innovation ecosystem in the Helsinki metropolitan area is quite big, to guide researchers, students and other innovators to the most relevant ecosystem players, HB&M  created an Innovation Path Finder. The Innovation Path Finder is built as a question-based guide that takes individual needs into consideration. 

Moreover, together with the University of Helsinki Innovation Services, HB&M presents Invention Disclosure Quick-Guide that aims to answer the three main questions regarding the innovation process: “Why? When? and How?”. 

To those curious about innovation in neuroscience, HB&M has created a YouTube channel with videos of seminars on various topics of innovation in neuroscience.

Lastly, but not least, HB&M focuses on growing new startups with a focus on neuroscience. As the result of common efforts, Neurobiodesign program was launched in January 2021. You can follow the program here. 



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 GUIDES

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!
