HOCARE 2.0 (Home Care 2.0): The fact that by 2060 will be every third European older than 65 years makes the “Silver Economy” one of the fastest-growing economic domains. Many solutions for the elderly are digital-based but not well accepted by the care recipients. Thus, the current state presents a growing need to involve them in the product design process. The mission of HoCare2.0 is to provide customer-centred home care by co-creation. Therefore, the project engages the members of Quadruple Helix – SMEs, public institutions, research institutions and citizens in the development of new innovative health and social services or products.
OUTPUTS: One of the main project outputs is the creation of two innovative tools for the application of co-creation among SMEs and public providers of home care. The SME Tool is used for delivery of innovative home care solutions and the Policy Tool is for co-creation of public health or social homecare services.
