Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project is to explore what the local conditions for establishing one or more test beds in the area of health promotion and disease prevention efforts in Region Västernorrland look like. The goal is to have a clear picture of, if and in that case how one or more test beds would need to be formed to enable effective tests of products and services that can identify the need for changes in living habits and support such habits.

Expected results and effects

After completion of preparation projects, we have good knowledge and understanding of what the establishment of a test bed means and requires by the test bed developer, the testers and its partners. Based on this, the scope of the test bed is concrete and anchored internally and externally. We have a completed project plan for an implementation project with associated risk and opportunity analysis, budget and resource planning.

Planned approach and implementation

Environmental monitoring, networking, study visits and workshops for interpreting and drawing conclusions of collected information. Mapping local conditions regarding disease prevention efforts through study visits and interviews with stakeholders such as residents, employees and potential testers. Describe forms and conditions when products/services are developed within the framework of an Innovation Partnership. Mapping conditions for work with equal health in the test bed.
