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.

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.
