Successful German-Danish cooperation in healthcare

ILDA-care Business Case Award honours concepts for living and training in old age.

In conjunction with their German project partners, two Danish med-tech companies have been presented with the ILDA-care Business Case Award by BioRegio STERN Management GmbH and Welfare Tech. The ideas singled out for acclaim as part of the EU ILDA-care project were the "Age-Based Mobile Adaptive Micro apartment - AMAM", which is aimed at creating age-appropriate living space, and the "Virtual Rehabilitation and Training" virtual
training system. ILDA-care stands for "Intelligent Logistics, Digitalisation and Automated Workflows for the Homecare and Nursing homes sector" and is an EU initiative to systematically improve efficiency in the care industry. At the end of April, a special workshop was staged with the winning teams to further develop their business ideas.

The Danish Welfare Tech cluster from Odense and Stuttgart-based BioRegio STERN Management GmbH are working together to support ILDA-care. The EU project aims to form a new value chain that links together intelligent logistics, digitalisation and automation for the care sector. Raising the level of care provided in nursing facilities or people's own homes means having to find solutions that allow care staff to focus on delivering personal support instead of using up their scarce resources on time-consuming formal work processes. Numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the STERN BioRegion and Denmark and a number of research institutes are involved in the research project. "This strategic international partnership is giving rise to exciting collaborative projects. Two of these have now garnered an award with which to successfully hone their ideas further," says a delighted Dr. Margot Jehle, project manager from BioRegio STERN Management GmbH.
