There is a well-developed innovation support system and great experience from supporting innovations in the business sector in Halland. For example, through Centre for Health Technology Halland (the former name for Leap for Life). Between 2015 and 2020, the Centre for Health Technology Halland worked with 140 organisations in different innovation projects, test projects and competence panels.
The innovation projects’ goal is to strengthen Hallands innovation power and contribute to increased growth. By focusing on products and services for the future healthcare, we develop ideas together.
Datadriven Innovation i Halland (Data driven innovation in Halland) stems from the two existing projects AI.m and Testmiljö Halland. Both projects help businesses develop and improve in different ways. In the new project, Leap for Life and HighFive offer a wider range of solutions and more flexibility than the previous projects have.
During the first phase of the project, a number of meeting places were developed for municipalities, companies, and educational institutions. As well as platforms for sharing the latest knowledge and experience in the field of welfare technology. These platforms and meeting places will be used in the next phase of the project to further strengthen collaboration between companies, public organisations, academia, and civil society around the development of new shared solutions that contribute to better and more skills development, needs identification, user involvement, and implementation in welfare.
The purpose of the project is to link academia, municipalities and regions for joint development and innovation across the entire Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak area (ÖKS). By spreading and sharing knowledge about the best welfare technology solutions, value is created for both citizens, companies and authorities.
