Co-creating new technologies with citizens is under way!

SocKETs is conducting six case studies across Europe, called SocKETs Labs, and focusing on the application of key enabling technologies towards a diversity of innovation and societal challenges in the sectors of construction, e-health and automation industry.

Their co-creation journey started a few months ago, and they are now advanced in their exploration of citizen engagement practices in technology development.

Let's grab our backpack, and travel around Europe to see where they are at. You will be able to find on our website their latest updates and advancements.

  • e-Health applications in Denmark

Our partner DTI is exploring the different challenges that are currently facing the implementation of e-Health practices in the country. Together with participants, different actors of the Danish society are building solutions to overcome those challenges while answering everyone's expectations and needs, with a particular focus on the elderly needs.

  • e-Health in Serbia

CPN is collaborating with different stakeholders that could contribute to improving healthcare and quality of life in a variety of different domains. They have highlighted the importance of collaboration among all the sectors involved and the need for common ground.

  • e-Health in Bulgaria

CRA is particularly focused on KETs-based applications in disease monitoring, innovative devices and practices, ICT applications and platforms that are user-friendly, non-invasive and can be used in a non-hospital environment. They are building recommendations to advance the sector.

  • Circular Economy in Estonia

The Estonian lab, hosted by AHHAA, will focus on the country’s efforts in moving from a linear economy to a circular economy business model in various spheres, including energy production, construction, packaging and much more. Citizens are now actively involved in the development of solutions

  • Circular economy in Italy

AIRI focuses on the technologies enabling the transition of the building and construction sector and the built environment towards a circular economy. Various actors in the field and the society are developing scenarios for what the future of the construction sector would look like.

  • Automation systems in the Basque country

Our Spanish partner Tecnalia is currently developing a community of practice industry representatives, citizens and stakeholders to discuss, think and prototype solutions related to potential transformation of the work due to recent developments in Artificial Intelligence.
