Abstract [en]

This study explores what role science and technology parks (STP) can play when aiming to increase knowledge regarding the implementation of products for the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech), including Industry 4.0 technology-based products (products), on a national level in Sweden. Such products, have problems reaching the market due to increased complexity from a purchase perspective. In this study, an STP developed a guideline on implementation-advice based on user-needs, literature studies, and focus groups. The guideline was presented at a seminar, where representatives from all regions in Sweden attended. The STP initiated the project, developed the guideline, and disseminated it successfully at a national level. The guideline was evaluated six months after the seminar, indicating that it created value in practice. This indicates that STPs could take an active role supporting products in the health-tech sector. New seminars are planned, and further studies are suggested.
