Idéklinikken is an innovation unit under the North Jutland Region that specialises in innovation within the health sector. Idéklinikken systematically collects ideas within the research, clinical and operational environments of the region’s hospitals and psychiatric and specialised social sectors. The ideas are then screened based on commercial parameters. Depending on the assessment, the idea is developed with its practical use in mind, resulting in, for example, a licensing agreement, a sale to an industrial partner, or the establishment of start-up company. Ideas are developed in collaboration with various business partners. Idéklinikken works with a wide network of companies, business promoters and investors at regional, national and international levels, as well as with relevant research institutions in Denmark and abroad. www.idé
