At C4H we unlock the collaborative potential of Aerospace, Energy, and Creative Industries SMEs leveraged on Biotechnology, ICT and Medical Devices sectors for the generation of innovative solutions that enhance patient-centred personalized care.
End-user innovation in health and care means identifying and accurately describing healthcare challenges of today, and seeking innovative ideas from cross-sectorially collaborating SME´s to help adress those challenges.
By adressing healthcare challenges published in open calls €3,5m were distributed to SME´s collaborating across sectors. Health and care challenges were identified by arranging "Open Innovation Spaces" - forums allowing healthcare need owners to meet and openly discuss their everyday challenges. These challenges were then published in (2) open calls. Selected companies were awarded cash + services from the consortium (such as business advisory on strategy & IPR, development support, access to testbeds and Large-scale demonstrators, and support in accessing additional funding). Moreover a range of activities were arranged during the project; investor days, hackathons, to name a few.
Condition of Success
KPI´s included jobs created in involved SME´s, participation rates in project activities, number of cross-sectorial collaborations started, dissemination success of the project, etc.
