Finland and IBM are teaming up to develop personalised healthcare and spark economic growth with Watson.

The Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation Tekes and IBM have announced a partnership that will enable Finland to utilise Watson cognitive computing to help doctors improve the health of its citizens. This in turn will strengthen and develop the Finnish innovation and business ecosystem in the fields of health and wellbeing.

IBM is to establish a Watson Health Center of Excellence in Finland, along with the first Nordic Healthcare Competence Center and the first National Imaging Center of Excellence to be located outside of the United States.
