Our story


The start

Alvican was established after a successful participation in the NORDIC INDEPENDENT LIVING CHALLENGE held by the Nordic capital city’s and Nordic Innovation.

The company was named E21 that has now been changed to Alvican.



In this competition we joined forces with Falk A/S of Denmark and Phillips A/S, and after almost 2 years of work the project reached the semi-finalist position.

See the old E21 website for more details on the competition.


Company focus

The company is dedicated to develop solutions for E-health with focus on elderly and disabled. Solutions for the rapidly increasing number of elders in the Nordics is our main tasks.



Alvican works closely with health professionals, municipalities and welfare centers. We are adjusting our data gateway to solve practical issues for older people wanting to stay longer in their own homes.
