Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Purpose and goal

During the initial phase of the project, regional healthcare providers, and dental care providers, municipal social service as well as various public health actors along with private business actors, non-profit sector and citizens, as well as the academy, has developed a program for an integrated health promotion arena of living labs in a socially deprived area. A prototype and an organization for such an arena of UDI-driven health-promoting living labs, where formulated in the initialization phase, along with sectors and citizens.

Expected results and effects

The aim is to improve the health of individuals and groups by developing people´s empowerment and achieve structural changes, but also to develop new products and markets through better collaboration. The organization provides the tools for these structural change across sectors and inhabitants in the borderland between private/public and non-governmental sector and the academia.

Planned approach and implementation

The prototype is based on people´s own needs through a range of activities in a socially vulnerable area with high unemployment, criminality, low education and a high proportion of non-Swedish-speaking population. During the initialization phase we have acquired an image of possible participating partners needs and processed a possible prototype in workshops, seminars and personal interviews
