EU project calls for innovative co-creation processes in the health sector

28. Mai 2018

12 regions wanted by the inDemand project: deadline 31 August

The inDemand project is looking for 12 regions interested to take up a co-creation model for the health sector. The deadline for applications is 31st August 2018 (see Application form, needs to be filled in English).

E. Dall from ZSI is member of the inDemand Advisory Board.


Benefits of becoming part of the inDemand Community  

  • To more efficiently utilise your regional funds earmarked for healthcare and/or digitalisation and foster innovation within your region.
  • To implement a new co-creation and demand-driven model in your Region that ensures that the uptake of the digital solution will be more successful as it serves a real, existing and prioritised need.
  • To foster the capacity of health entities to systematically identify and solve their needs while creating opportunities for private companies.
  • To replicate the inDemand model under the close coaching and personalised support of the three inDemand regions. inDemand Community Regions will benefit from a personalised support how to implement the model in their territories. Since they will take up an already validated model, this will allow them to save time, energy and efforts to avoid failure and risk.The know-how will be transferred through technical webinars and a fully refunded training session in Brussels in 2019.
  • Economic support: Challengers, Funders and Supporters from the selected 12 regions will be invited and their travel-accommodation costs will be reimbursed.

Requisites to be part of inDemand Community

  • Candidate regions have to submit the proposal in a Consortium that replicates the same constellation of stakeholders defined in the inDemand model, naming a:
    • Challenger: public entities, health care providers that identify the unmet needs and then co-create the solution with the solvers
    • Funder public: fund management organisations, managing authorities, usually managing Structural Funds at regional level. They launch the competitive call to identify the solvers.
    • Supporter:  business intermediary organisations, clusters that provide assistance to optimise the business model, access to funding and the commercialisation
  • Regions are eligible to apply if they can provide proven records of commitment and possibly experience of collaboration between the healthcare provider, the managing authority managing Structural Funds  and a business intermediary organisation, from the sector.
  • The selected regions must demonstrate they could implement the inDemand model leveraging their own resources (eg. regional structural funds).

Interested in some current examples:

Check out which issues the OULU REGION (e.g. a solution supporting resource planning for more efficient implementation of rooms, remote controlled mobile solution for children’s asthma examination, electronic guidance and advice pass for breastfeeding guidance, etc.) and the PARIS REGION (continuous monitoring of strokes in Neuro-Vascular Units, remote monitoring of real-life patient data to anticipate the occurrence of complications/degradations in transplant patients, e-consultations in the management of alcohol dependency) aim to address together with IT companies.

The MURCIA REGION already selected companies to help solving the four challenges proposed there (including e.g. avoiding care re-admission, child obesity support solutions, digital patient-doctor communication channel for epilepsy management and a HEAlthcare Training management platform).
