SHINE stands for Shared value creation in the Healthcare economy through INtegrated business modEls.

The SHINE project aims to push transnational and cross-sector co-operation in the healthcare economy, in order to disseminate the most innovative healthcare solutions and to develop new economic activities for SMEs across the North Sea Region.

In 2018, the SHINE project partners developed and launched an online tool to support companies, healthcare organisations and other stakeholders in the healthcare economy in setting up integrated business models. Have a look and try out this free tool!
