Northopedics is an innovation-oriented competency network in the field of bone healing.  Changing conditions in the health care system, such as demographic change, rising cost pressures and solutions that are still awaited for existing medical problems are forcing new and innovative approaches. Bringing forward innovations secures and reinforces growth and employment.

Building on existing competencies in clinics, science and industry, the Northopedics project has established and expanded a cooperative innovation network within the Life Science North region. Northopedic bundles competencies and drives the research and development of new ideas, solutions, products, procedures and services in bone healing.
