Itaca Workshop in Eindhoven
It was a pleasure to be involved in the recent Ithaca workshop in Eindhoven. Ithaca is an Interreg project that seeks to maximise industry involvement to improve policies for Smart Health and Care Innovation. As a small body of SMEs from the region we were challenged to consider the issue of ‘Engaging industry to improve health and care’.
Working in teams with some Dutch SME counterparts this proved to be an enjoyable and quite insightful experience. Guided by the energetic Paul Clitheroe from Liverpool CCG and the Shropshire Council team we were able to explore the idea using some hands-on design thinking. It was most pleasing that over the course of the workshop the teams devised several practical solutions/tools. Hopefully, these will be taken through into the wider Ithaca team for consideration.
