CareWare organizes a wide range of activities that bring together manufacturers, suppliers, entrepreneurs, researchers, policy makers, healthcare workers, and many others interested. It explores technological developments that support healthier and more self-dependent citizens, better working environments, pertinent business development, and more efficiency within the health and social care sector.

CareWare is committed to strengthen the collaboration between companies, research institutions, education programs, and public institutions all over Denmark. Among the activities is the annual two-day conference, part of which is an innovation competition for entrepreneurs that ties into the start-up Weekend Health event. Further activities allow participants to share their experiences across sectors and also encourage new networks and business relationships to be formed.

CareWare was initiated by the City of Aarhus in 2010 and is today organized by a consortium of public institutions, private companies, and organizations.
