Enhancing Regional Health Innovation Policies through the Living Lab concept

25-10-2018 Seats2Meet

Op 25 oktober 2018 organiseert project HELIUM een eenmalig evenement rondom de meest recente ontwikkelingen over Living Labs in Europese setting en innovatiebeleid. 

Het consortium van het Interreg Europe project HELIUM zet zich in voor het verbeteren van huidig innovatie beleid gericht op gezondheid en gezondheidsinnovaties. Deze verbeteringen zouden ertoe moeten leiden dat de publieke middelen efficiënter en effectiever ingezet kunnen worden om de slagingskans van nieuwe producten op de markt te vergroten. Hierin ziet het consortium de methodieken en het valorisatievermogen van Living Labs (Proeftuinen) als cruciaal onderdeel.

Interreg Europe supports regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. HELIUM, one of the Interreg Europe projects, is focusing on policies affecting Health Innovation. By creating an environment and opportunities for sharing Good Practices, HELIUM aims to improve the support mechanisms for Health Innovation. Among many other inspiring Good Practices, we concluded that the living lab concept which is built upon principles of user driven open innovation has the potential to enrich the existing sets of instruments for regional innovation policies. 

On the 25th of October, 2018, we would like to discuss the role of the living lab concept in regional policy instruments for health innovation. This will be done by Mr. Bror Salmelin, Former Adviser to the European Commission, Ms. Zsuzsanna Bódi, Association Director of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), Mr. Tim Daniels, Project Manager at Brainport Development and Mrs. Astrid Kaag, Policy Officer of the Province of North-Brabant. Furthermore, we would like to share with you some of our most popular Good Practices which have been identified within the HELIUM project. 

This event will bring Interreg Europe projects together with an interest in improved policy for health innovation and/or the living lab concept. During the event you will have a chance to share and exchange ideas and experiences. 

If you are interested in joining us, please remember to register for this free event. Deadline for registration is October 12th, 2018.
