communitiesinnovationScientific Conference

The Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium annual conference will be held this year at Ingenio CSIC-UPV, Valencia, Spain on 4-5th November. The focus will be on understanding how academic scholars and practitioners across the globe are interpreting and enacting transformative innovation policies through research and policy actions. It aims to offer a platform for advancing the building of a global research community on transformative innovation, to identify people and projects (established or early stage) working at the intersection of innovation, policy and transformative change in Global North as well as Global South contexts.

Barbara Kieslinger from ZSI will be presenting Careables at the conference. An exerpt from our application:

Careables are driven by a methodological commitment towards co-design of ‘open’ healthcare solutions, involving all relevant stakeholders. Key to co-design is that people become creators, not only users of innovation. In our case, patients, their families, healthcare professionals and designers are involved in the co-design process as experts in their specific environments, together with makers, who are experts in the use of digital tools, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, etc. At a global scale we offer a platform for sharing open healthcare solutions, including detailed documentation to facilitate the replication and adaptation of careables.
