What we're about
This meetup group is for everyone interested in digital health. Whether you are an entrepreneur, professional, student, or in general a digital health enthusiast, you are welcome to join us, broaden your network and knowledge, share your ideas, learn about the latest trends, and meet like-minded people.
This group is a place for exchanging ideas, and the topics we cover go from really academic tech subjects up to futuristic ideas of how digital health will impact our lives. We want to bring all digital enthusiasts together to foster the creation of new ideas, synergies and opportunities.
Join the group and be part of a community influencing how the digital future will look like.
How it works
We meet almost every month for an event, but the format of the event may differ from time to time. We have invited speakers from industry or academia, startup pitches, hands-on workshops, panel discussions, and hackathons.
Want to present, know of a great speaker, or are interested in hearing about a specific topic? Fill out this form: https://forms.gle/sRVtKT8wYWYwjHEM7 (Also use the form if you have a cool location where we could have one of the meetups, or would like to sponsor the event.)
Upcoming events (1)
Join us on the 18th of April at the lab in the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.
At this networking event, we will present current KU research on digital healthcare including the pushing the boundaries of how we design self-tracking technologies, developing technologies for managing chronic illness such as heart disease and what KU has to offer in terms of digital health research.
Sigurdsgade 41, 2100 KBH Ø. Press the doorbell on the blue gate for access.

Sarah Homewood is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Human Centred Computing at the University of Copenhagen. She has a background as a contemporary dancer and her research within human-computer interaction is informed by her interest in how technologies shape our experience of our bodies, specifically self-tracking technologies. She has conducted research in the areas of ovulation, menopause and menstrual tracking, and gut health tracking. She is currently researching how chronic illnesses are managed through self-tracking. Her research methods include co-design and research-through-design.
Tariq Osman Andersen is an associate professor of Health Informatics at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen. His research focuses on AI in digital health and explores how co-design and sociotechnical evaluation can support realising machine learning based systems in healthcare. Tariq has experience from large national and international R&D projects and he has been the main driver of establishing and mainting a Living Lab with more than 300 pacemaker patients leading to a spinout company in digital health.
Henriette Langstrup is associate professor in the Centre for Medical Science and Technology studies at Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen. She is also head of studies of Health Informatics. Her main area of research is Digital Health and User Practices with a special emphasis on qualitative and ethnographic explorations of the social and organizational implication of innovative technologies in the area of chronic care management. In particular she studies the implication of the increased involvement of and innovation by patients made possible through digital health and organizational innovation.
