Martti Ahtisaari Institute will take part in the three-year joint InDemand R&D project that got funded by EU.
The project will set up and evaluate a new co-creation model that is economically sustainable, fills the gap of current public-innovation instruments and increases the chances of business success by, for example, incorporating business support measures so suppliers, especially SMEs, have more chances to get commercial traction after the pilot phase and receive private investment.
The project involves altogether 11 partners from Spain, France, Belgium and Finland. The Finnish parties are the Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District (PPSHP), the Council of Oulu Region (PPL), BusinessOulu and University of Oulu (Faculty of Medicine, Martti Ahtisaari Institute).
