Data is one of the most valuable sources in shaping our future. But how do we use it safely and transparently to build new solutions for the common good?

This fall, the Danish Design Centre will work with the Danish Business Authority to unlock the potential of Danish health data. Denmark is internationally renowned for the quality of its health data, due to the country’s decades-long tradition for registering and journaling patient cases.
 

"In Denmark, we have an exceptional high quality of health care data combined with very high standards for data ethics. This is data that can actually save lives and that can be used to develop new health solutions if we use them wisely. The challenge is about getting new ideas on how we do this the best way," says Minister for Business, Simon Kollerup.

With the Life Data Challenge, we invite Danish and international companies to work conceptually with Danish health data variables, unleashing their full value to develop new solutions and seeding the ground for new public-private partnerships in the process.

"Data is the pulse of future health. By putting into play the significant supply of Danish quality health data, anonymized and in a responsible manner, we can design solutions that improve the quality of health services and ultimately save lives," says CEO of Danish Design Centre Christian Bason.
