Region Zealand - one of the most innovative regions in Denmark in terms of Public - Private Innovation and Data - Driven Health Improvements
Addressing inequality in health through innovation and new partnerships.
FIERS and the Life Science Innovation Hub (Innohub) is a unique one of a kind set-up in Denmark. Region Zealand, Nykøbing Falster Hospital and FIERS strive to work together to improve health and well-being for all citizens in the region through health innovation.
Our ambition is to create the optimal environment for both start-ups/SMEs and collaboration with larger international life science, med-tech, medico corporations and other partners, motivate and to develop their business and create solutions for our common future health.
In Denmark and internationally, we are facing some major health challenges which forces us to think and act in new ways – this is why we at Life Science Innovation Hub work to improve and develop innovation within healthcare to ultimately serve the health care users and health care professionals.
The Innohub facilitates resources within the area of digital life science, which can be used to shorten the innovation process by connecting the innovators to the right data, to the clinical knowledge and to test centres and simulation facilities at the right time. While at the same time aiding a health care sector under increasing pressure struggling to meet the demands of today.
We Are #Changers
We are working towards changing the healthcare system through innovation & new partnerships and are inspired by the UNs Sustainable Development Goals to do so! We are proud to be a part of doing world-class work with Nykøbing Falster Hospital that is the first hospital in Denmark that actively works with SDGs.
- SDG 3 Good Health and Well-being
- SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities
- SDG 17 New partnerships for the goals
In Lolland, Falster and South Zealand we are currently experiencing the beginning of “the perfect storm”. There are many with chronic diseases. There are many who have several diseases at once. There are many who are severely overweight. There are many who smoke. We could go on. At the same time, we lack nurses and doctors at the hospital. There are great distances from people’s homes to the treatment services they need.
We have to do something. Now!
- Collaboration with Start-ups/SME and larger corporations
- Access to in clinic testing facilities
- Data analysis
- Creating a new Innovation infrastructure
- Promoting health equity and sustainability in health care
- Cross-sectoral and public-private collaboration
Who We Are
The Innohub offers an ideal set-up for development, testing and funding of new innovative solutions within Life Science in both public and private partnerships.

We connect stakeholders across sectors and countries and help SMEs/start-ups to develop and reach their goals.
