Alzheimer’s Challenge: Public can co-create solutions to patient behaviour online

16th August 2019

Register now: The collaborative innovation journey begins 8 October

Join an EIT Health E-Labs community to collaborate online and in-person in addressing an important health challenge: How can we help people with signs of Alzheimer’s to overcome denial and seek medical help as early as possible?

The effort to involve Europeans in discussing this challenge is being organised through the cooperation of Roche, Karolinksa Institutet Unit of Bioentrepreneurshipa and OpenLab Stlm as part of the EIT Health E-labs activity.

Anyone can register online to join the web community here. Ideas submitted online through that community will be published, discussed and developed. The online discussion will be supplemented by in-person gatherings and culminate in a January meeting in Stockholm. Registration is open now, and the journey begins 8 October 2018.

It will still be possible to register after that date and join while the process is in progress.

The quest to address this challenge employs the EIT Health E-Labs process of collaborative development of solution – an inclusive and open approach encouraged by EIT Health. Together with anyone interested in contributing, we want to explore the topic of denial of Alzheimer patients and their caregiver and ease the path to early healthcare intervention with a design challenge.

Roche will take use the ideas gathered online inform several live events all around Europe, and all members of the online community will be invited. These events will be designed with one of two goals:

  1. to generate ideas
  2. to develop one of the ideas in the community.

During this period, everyone is encouraged to organise additional events involving the community.

E-labs will provides educational material and will guide the process through the journey until the final event, which will be in Stockholm 11-12 January 2019. At this final event, a few ideas have been selected to be particularly interesting by a jury and will be further developed through facilitation by E-labs.
