Challenge

Citizens and patients will be involved as stakeholders in the “identify, invent, implement” phases as participants during the immersion in clinical settings. In the more intense studies, e.g. test phase of the prototypes and business concept, we foresee participation through questionnaires, hackathons, workshops and other interactions. In these phases, citizens and patients will be co-design partners and provide essential information and advice on further development of the most effective and desired solutions leading to increased market potential for those solutions.
The level and form of citizen engagement will differ per clinical context and development phase. In all situations, teams ask for the consent of participating citizens and – if agreed upon - the participating citizens, patients and carers will be kept informed of the teams’ progress. A list of citizen alumni over the years will be used per location and this can provide a platform for the launch of an EIT Health Citizen Alumni Framework - which has been discussed in the Citizen Engagement activity line.

We have consulted citizens that were engaged in 2019 activities on their experiences and used the feedback to continuously improve our activities. The main findings were that communication on what happens after the co-creation sessions could be improved. Each program site will take this into account when developing their program processes going forward.

Solution

Our project addresses the need to provide learners with critical skill set acquisition that translates into significant career progression or supports them in developing competitive spinouts. The network has a proven track record of training experts within a diverse set of fields (primarily medicine, business, engineering, and design) into health innovation leaders and entrepreneurs.

Studies show that one of the major reasons innovations fail is because there is no market need for the proposed solution. Therefore, our programs provide an alternative to traditional “supply push” innovation, and instead teaches a structured - “demand pull” - approach to innovate based on the market and/or societal need.

No other educational offering in Europe gives the participants such a holistic view of the health innovation pathway with hands-on experience of developing a novel solution in a multidisciplinary team in close collaboration with healthcare professionals and patients.
