GoCo Arena

A programme for the future of health

GoCo Arena is the platform that will drive the innovative culture of the entire Life Science cluster. The Arena is both a natural meeting place and an innovation programme with participants from all over the world. Both are up and running, gaining momentum to tackle the challenges facing human health.

The innovation programme

Our programme aims to accelerate health innovation by bringing people together. Through this platform, scientists, professionals, creatives and entrepreneurs meet and share knowledge in order to innovate. The agenda is set together with our founding partners from the industry and academy.

The programme will include different themes, speakers and regular occasions. The first theme is underway and lots more is waiting around the corner.

The meeting place

The physical Arena is designed for people to be creative and exchange ideas. It lies at the centre of the city, and is open to all who want to hang out, network and collaborate. The outside sets the tone, with reused shipping containers joined together to host restaurants, innovative meeting places, co-working and inspire creativity.

Events

First theme:Physical activity

It’s widely accepted that physical activity is good for us. But how, why and to what extent? And perhaps most pressingly, how can we inspire people to be more physically active? We invite some of the most prominent experts to share their knowledge and then we inspire discussion, hold workshops and lay the foundation for new ideas.

Behavioural Changes Toward Better Health

Our physical activity is decreasing. Something that affects our mental and physical health negatively. However, it is not only adults who move less, but also our youngest citizens spend too much time sitting still. This is something that needs to change.

Nutrition, Health & Performance

What we eat affects our health and how we perform. This is a well-established fact, but further knowledge about the relationship between nutrition and human health isn’t as widespread. With GoCo Arena’s open digital seminar on Nutrition, Health and Performance, we invite you to learn more.
