Purpose and goal

A working model is built on a user-driven process with tools for the platform that has been designed and tested, and which have been established by a new network function. The platform with its working model can be disseminated and used in different contexts. An interdisciplinary evaluation model has been integrated.

Expected results and effects

The result shows that self-reported health is improved through social integration and in the user-driven innovation processes. The model develops empowerment through user-driven innovation when inhabitants from residential areas are integrated into the processes. System obstacles to p-helix collaboration are identified in the platform at a strategic level and solutions established through the locally anchored platform at an operational local level.

Planned approach and implementation

The platform tests innovative solutions in its lab in a p-helix structure and has developed products but also proposals for new service innovations. The platform is integrated and disseminated in dialogue with the municipality in the program management, and activity operations, with property owners and non-profit organizations.
