iMinds’ Living Lab expertise

iMinds is one of the partners of the new CrossCare project. CrossCare is a transnational project that gathers six Flemish and Dutch living lab initiatives, aimed at accelerating care innovations by supporting entrepreneurs in their experimental development. This should allow new products and services to reach the market sooner. An essential element to this process is the living lab setting which CrossCare is offering to companies and care institutions.
 
These living labs will give entrepreneurs and developers the chance to develop their products or services with a maximum chance of success with their target groups, by helping them to test new or improved care concepts, services, processes and products with actual end users.
 
iMinds is a partner in the five-year project thanks to its extensive expertise in living lab research. iMinds is also Program Office of the Care Living Labs Flanders, a successful project which expires by the end of 2016 and is now succeeded by CrossCare. iMinds is looking into the needs and expectations of companies starting an innovation track and advises the care living labs so they can align their offer and services accordingly. iMinds also measures the added value these transnational care living lab innovation tracks bring for the companies involved.
