One of the aims of Helsinki Brain & Mind (HB&M)  is to facilitate researchers from different backgrounds to co-create and innovate in the neuroscience area. In 2020–2021, HB&M prepared a systematic  health innovation ecosystem mapping in the Helsinki metropolitan area,  offering  an updated overview of the ecosystem. The health innovation ecosystem in the Helsinki metropolitan area is very lively and complex, and offers many possibilities for each innovation step: from the development of an innovative idea to the final innovation product. Below we have described some of the innovation activities carried out as part of HB&M.
