Health systems around the world are under immense pressure and are looking into important transitions to meet the needs of populations, whilst also solving challenges of creating health systems with more equality in healthcare and a more balanced use of resources.
Introduction of innovate technologies and a new focus on providing care earlier and outside of clinical setting are crucial, but also an empowerment of patients and a democratization of health services are important factors to consider in the healthcare systems of the future. During the life science session on the conference, we will put the spotlight on 3 important global trends within healthcare:
1. Hospitals at home by ICDK Boston and Rigshospitalet
2. Femtech by ICDK Tel Aviv and BioInnovation Institute
3. Telehealth and Medical Tourism by ICDK Shanghai and Nordic Life Science
The session will be moderated by Danish Life Science Cluster.
Mobility is a traditional stronghold in Southern Germany due to its automotive industry. However, mobility is changing. New players are on the rise, and mobility is strongly influenced by four major trends: autonomous driving, electrification, connectivity, and shared mobility. This transformation paves the way for a new mobility ecosystem in which established industry players try to rethink their offerings and new players try to disrupt the status quo.
Meanwhile, China currently holds the position of global leader in the EV battery industry, accounting for a significant share of both global production and consumption and the industry enjoys strong support from the Chinese government. Corporate giants like BYD and CATL are investing heavily in new battery technologies and experiment with sustainable production practices including cradle-to-cradle management. While at the same time, Chinese startups are developing new technologies that enable production of the next generation of batteries through dismantling, extraction, and separation equipment.
These technology developments influence the European green mobility market. In this session, we will discuss how policymakers in Denmark and decisionmakers in Danish industry and grid management should react to the technology development in South Germany and China, as well as what challenges and opportunities the new technologies offer to Danish industry and to our national climate goals.

Space is becoming an important part of Danish innovation system internationally – and space is an area of technology which can dominate the future of business, science and innovation.
In the “Space” session at the ICDK Global Tech Trends 2023 conference ICDK will present recent trends from the space sector from a global perspective. Joel Stafford from the centre in Bangalore will give a talk about the Indian space sector and Morten Scheel Larsen from the centre in Silicon Valley will present an overview of recent trends within the American space sector.
Both presentations will focus on the many possibilities in the space sector in these two markets for Danish corporations, academic researchers, entrepreneurs, and government entities working within the space sector.
After the presentations, a panel discussion focusing on how the Danish innovation centres can help strengthen and improve the Danish space sector will take place. The panel includes Joel Stafford and Morten Scheel Larsen from ICDK, Chief Consultant Henrik Navntoft Sønderskov from Danish Industry, CEO Sheila Christiansen from SpaceTech denMACH and CEO Michael Lumholt from Lumholt Space Technologies.
The session is managed by Anders Laustsen from CenSec and Peter Mandix Sehestedt from the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
The global climate tech landscape is rapidly changing with leading initiatives from both east and west of Denmark. It is generally accepted that Green Hydrogen will play a significant role and now the IPCC has recognized that carbon removals are also critical for achieving the Paris Climate Agreement Goals. In this session we will hear from India and its global ambitions on Green Hydrogen and how this supports its overall energy transition. From the US, we will hear about new technologies for carbon removal that are getting traction while the tech giants are playing a central role for the durable carbon market.
How do these trends interconnect and what are the opportunities for Danish stakeholder?
Join us for presentations and discussions.
With inspirational market presentations from the Innovation Centres in Silicon Valley and Seoul, we delve into some of the numerous opportunities and impacts that come with the technological advancements of Generative AI and the Metaverse. Thus, the global presentations offers both general and domain specific use cases, ranging from application potentials of AI across various industries in the US, to the technological convergence of GenAI and Metaverse in smart city development in South Korea.
Following the international presentations, we’ve invited a panel of elite ecosystem actors to anchor the debate around GenAI & Metaverse applications in a Danish market context, discussing use cases, limitations and not least ethical questions central to the success of these converging tech areas
The panel consists of:
