Purpose and goal

The aim was to develop a national zero vision for malnutrition among the elderly and the goal was to develop a strategy for implementation in the ecosystem. We have mapped the gaps between the organisations in the ecosystem. These organisations have, in three innovation guilds, worked out action areas for pilot projects that can fulfill the Zero Vision. A core team consisting of Livsmedelsakademin, Kävlinge- and Stockholm municipality, Findus, Orkla, Fazer, Cuviva, University of Kristianstad, the National Board of Social Affairs and the Swedish Food Agency has been formed.

Expected results and effects

The result of the project is an anchored strategy for how the Zero Vision for Malnutrition among the elderly shall be implemented. It will be done through pilot projects that can be scaled up and organizational efforts in municipalities starting in Kävlinge and Stockholm city, in collaboration with food companies, initially Orkla, Findus and Fazer, and within IT / communication Cuviva and with the Swedish Food Agency and the National Board of Health. The effects of the feasibility study are that the vision is rooted in this core team and has reached about 100 organizations in the ecosystem.

Planned approach and implementation

The design of the project, starting with a desk research to identify problem areas that were subsequently dragged down to the innovation guild with the ecosystem worked well. The desk research identified which narrators we needed to have at our three innovation guilds; elderly people, people who work with services for the elderly, and people who could tell about the collaboration between different institutions. The three innovation guilds identified gaps, problems and challenges based on the stories. This resulted in focus areas and pilot projects.
