User driven innovation in the health care sector
This project of the Nordic Innovation Center aimed to draw attention to user driven innovation in the health care sector, and to develop and test methods for user driven innovation in the context of health care.

“The report consists of an overview of innovation theory, hereunder user driven innovation directions, an analysis of the health care sector, the need for innovation and the specificities which have to be taken into consideration in innovation processes and a presentation of state of the art examples from the Nordic region and the USA.

Most important, the study comprises six pilot projects which have been carried out during the study. The pilot projects are supposed to test various methods of user driven innovation and the results give an idea of where one has to put effort in order to make innovation processes in the health care sector as smooth, effective and successful as possible.”
