  • Start & end date
  • Local living lab and cross-border living lab collaborate and support the SME / big company to transfer the service
  • We will not go into detail on the pilot level results – time is too shortFocus on overall lessons learnedVia living lab collaboration; the living Living lab helps to find a good match with the stakeholders and is able to activate the right local stakeholder required for the cross-border pilotThis is not possible in a predefined ecosystem model
  • Living lab as matchmaker – bring the SME in contact with ecosystems abroad via the living lab networkLiving lab abroad bringing the SME in contact with the right actorsLiving lab as broker: Living lab as broker – the living lab abroad knows how healthcare is organised, knows the actors and their roles, has direct access to end-users
  • With regard to cross-border pilots in Health various crucial aspects were identified in order to perform successful pilots. These aspects are critical in each stage of the experiment. Too often they are forgotten orneglected. In the APOLLON project we have listed those. The Living Labs appears to be a good facilitator and broker to address these issues. Not only do they often have the own expertise to guideSMEs or large enterprise directly, but they also have access to the necessary local stakeholders that are required to tackle these different aspects.

    1. 1. Results of the Apollon pilot in homecare and independent living Karen Willems Researcher IBBT-SMIT-VUB10/10/2012 1
    2. 2. Apollon key objectives Evaluate the added value for SME’s to use networks of living labs to test and enter new markets cross- border Validate the added value of a (domain specific) living lab network  Homecare & independent living services  Energy efficiency  eManufacturing  eParticipation 10/10/2012 2
    3. 3. Objectives Homecare & Independent livingexperiments Evaluate Homecare and Independent Living services from different SME’s in another country Determine if it is feasible to develop a common ecosystem living lab model Provide a “lessons learned” in transferring or setting- up cross border living lab projects in homecare & independent living  Develop common methods  Develop common tools 10/10/2012 3
    4. 4. Homecare & independent living pilot set-up Cluster 4 living labs Transfer three types of Forum Virium Finland H&IL services from one market to another  Videophony service AIM XtramiraTM developed by The Netherlands Televic from Belgium to Finland  ADL sensor network IBBT living lab developed by Innovating Belgium from the Netherlands to Spain Iavante  I Can Help Service Spain developed by Logica from the Netherlands to Belgium 10/10/2012 4
    5. 5. Main challenge  Local level : ecosystem building & open-innovation culture  Cross-border level: ecosystem mapping Building and Consulting (advisory Local or regional Hardware/software/d Government Service providershousing industry bodies) authorities evice providersProviders of AAL Medical products and Healthcare providers Industry Insurances NGO’s institutions/hospitals services Non-university End user groups Safety application Universities research (patients, informal … … providers organisations carers etc.) Identified AAL stakeholders - ICT enabled independent living for elderly: A status- quo analysis on products and the research landscape in the field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) in EU (Conrad & GaBner, 2010) 10/10/2012 5
    6. 6. Important overall pilot results Common cross-border ecosystem model for living labs in healthcare isn’t feasible! Lots of differences:  Value network differs: different actors with different roles  Organization of healthcare differs  User needs, user expectations, …  IT-infrastructure  Regulations  … Living lab as broker and matchmaker 10/10/2012 6
    7. 7. Living lab as broker and matchmaker • Able to activate the right local stakeholders required for the SME • Able to provide direct access to end-users toSME with test and co-create AAL abroadproduct/s Cross-border • Provide insights in ervice Living Lab health system, regulations, etc. Local Living Lab Cross-border Living lab Local living lab ecosystem Cross-border Living Lab 10/10/2012 7
    8. 8. Critical elements identified during the pilot Living lab as facilitator and broker to address key issues and critical elements in cross-border healthcare projects Privacy Access to Liability end-users Rules & Ethics regulations Critical elements in cross-border collaboration Trust in health Local assessment Cost Safety 10/10/2012 Maturity 8
    9. 9. ConclusionTowards a network of smart care living labs Strong need for a domain specific network of living labs active in healthcare, homecare, independent living, AAL, wellbeing, smart care, prevention,… Knowledge & exchange platform  Sharing domain specific knowledge and experience  Developing domain specific methodologies and services Gateway & broker for new collaborations  Active connecting and collaborating environment  Networking with other Living Labs (cross-domain) 10/10/2012 9
    10. 10. ConclusionThe network of smart care living labs Focus on combination of: Technological innovation Business Social model innovation innovation 10/10/2012 10
