Survey to AHA-related service providers/innovators

Dear service provider!

Are you providing solutions (service, innovation, product) to people of 65+ to support active and healthy ageing? Would you like to reach a bigger impact with your service? Do you wish to share your good practice with peers?

The aim of this survey is to map current practices in measuring the impact of innovative solution. The information collected by the survey will be used to improve an evaluation framework for the active and healthy aging domain.

What is in it for you?

You will receive the aggregated results and contribute to better methods and tools for impact assessment.

We invite you to take the survey, if you answer yes to at least 2 of the following points:

  • your organization has developed an innovative solution for active and healthy ageing such as digital health or care solution;
  • the end users are seniors (65 years or older), formal or informal caregivers or other organizations providing solution to end users;
  • your service has been brought to market in at least one EU state, and you aim to scale it up and go outside your home market.

The Innovation Networks for Scaling Active and Healthy Ageing (IN-4-AHA) is a Coordination and Support Action funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme. The EU-funded IN-4-AHA project will enhance the uptake of digital innovations in active and healthy ageing.

The deadline for submitting answers has been extended to May 20.

Workshop: How to unlock the potential of stakeholders in active and healthy ageing participatory design process?

How to create an innovative solution that will excel in the market? Who to engage in the design process? How to engage? Which are the tools for stakeholder engagement?

On 21 April, the IN-4-AHA consortium organized the workshop “How to unlock the potential of stakeholders in active and healthy ageing participatory design process” to answer these specific questions. The virtual meeting was hosted to discuss best practices from the Unites States and Estonia on how to create and scale up successful products in the field of active and healthy ageing.

The event focused on the involvement of end-users and how stakeholders can be actively involved in the design process of novel solutions. The first presentation was given by Helen Kokk, UI/UX Expert and Graphic Designer (Estonia), who discussed specific case-studies on stakeholder engagement. Robert Schultz, Managing Director at Massnex (United States), informed the audience on his experiences on how to partner with the community and target group.
