eHealth for healthy ageing, get inspired! Part 2

  • HEALTHY BEHAVIOUR
  • DESIGN FOR CHANGE
  • TALK

Join the kick-off of the ten public-private partnership projects and the overarching project awarded a ZonMw grant within the Create Health programme!

In two subsequent blocks (click here for part 1) the ten projects are presented. The overarching project ‘Creative & Health Innovation Ways of Working Analysis (CHIWAWA)’, that was set up to find generic knowledge and insights from the ten projects, is presented too.

The goal of this meeting is to introduce the projects to the broad fields of the creative and healthcare/welfare sectors, making a first step towards collaboration and creating support for the outcomes of these projects. In addition, this meeting shows concrete examples of what collaborations between creative and healthcare/welfare can result in.

The projects
The Create Health projects relate to the development of knowledge of eHealth for the creative industries and for healthcare and welfare under one or more of the three themes concerning elderly people or the process of ageing:

  1. Home care and self-management: longer independent with dementia;
  2. Preventing overweight: prevention through changes in lifestyle;
  3. Preventing loneliness: ensuring that vulnerable elderly people do not become lonely.

The overarching project will research the use of creative methodology at meta level in the above-mentioned Create Health projects and the added value of this methodology for achieving new innovation in the healthcare sector. The project will also investigate how this added value is accomplished.

Programme part 2

Crossing Boundaries
The next five Create Health projects will pitch their project. Part 2 discusses the difficulties and benefits of cross-disciplinary collaboration between health, creative- and research professionals. The biasses as discussed during the break will be used to gain a better understanding of the sociocultural characteristics of each sector and the way these characteristics influence collaboration.

Furthermore, the overarching project CHIWAWA will present how they will yield insight on the creative ways of working of the ten projects.

Create Health
The ZonMw Create Health programme aims to help address the societal challenge of healthy ageing. It will do so by bringing together parties from the creative industries and from the healthcare and welfare sector, supporting the development and sharing of knowledge, providing access to funding and assisting with scaling-up. More information about the Create Health programme and projects can be found on the ZonMw website.
