Background:

Laurea University of Applied Sciences and Canadian TechnoMontréal have a collaboration agreement. The collaboration focuses especially on advancing health and wellbeing of the elderly through co-creation.


TechnoMontréal is a Canadian organisation that facilitates collaboration between public and private actors through technological solutions such as AI.


The agreement has been made as part of Co-creation Orchestration (CCO) and Product Validation in Health (ProVaHealth) projects. CCO builds a model that helps businesses, cities, researchers and citizens work together to develop better services that promote wellbeing and health. ProVaHealth promotes collaboration between Living Labs in the healthcare industry. According to the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), "Living Labs are user-centred, open innovation ecosystems based on a systematic user co-creation approach integrating research and innovation processes in real life communities and settings".


The agreement is the first one of its kind on the road to creating a transnational collaboration network. In both Canada and Finland, population aging is a major challenge. Co-creation helps health and wellbeing actors and creates customer-centric solutions to the problems posed by an aging population. Read more about TechnoMontréal here: https://technomontreal.com/en/
