Ideas from Europe sets a standard for future collaboration: Shared Purpose, Joint Development.
Our Value Track methodology aligns stakeholder perspectives to investigate the conditions under which innovative development can be successful. We then uncover interdependencies between stakeholders and match people based on collective motivation and individual needs.
The Value Track includes governments, scientific institutions, corporate organisations, innovators and citizens. We look at the participants as individuals and inferential to their role in the development cycle. For example, the Government can participate from an innovation perspective, a funding perspective or a regulatory perspective.
1. Validate Shared Purpose
First we determine a Shared Purpose with representative stakeholders who confirm the value and relevancy from their perspectives. These stakeholders open their network, creating broad awareness for each perspective.
2. Validate Opportunities and Constraints
We align stakeholder perspectives and run analysis on where the action is. We then identify opportunities and constraints that impact innovative development.
3. Validate Matches
Our insights on collective interests and individual needs enable us to connect people and resources effectively. We ‘plug-in’ into events and communities, applying our methodology to exchange stakeholder perspectives. Our plug-ins reflect and adapt to what participants bring, creating network growth and broader knowledge.
Energy storage will transform the renewable energy sector with great impact on the availability for clean energy. Solutions are already feasible and scalable, so we need to work together to get them to the market.Erik Faassen, EIT Climate-KIC Benelux
With e-mental health, healthcare is becoming more accessible. Clients become more involved in their treatment. The user can also work on the problem in daily situations. Usersreceive more feedback and become more open because they can stay anonymous.” Digitale Zorgkompas
The use of AI in predicting and preventing mental health conditions will show its potential in years to come. It will be based personalised, based on historic data and machine learning algorithms. It will require participatory ( self-management + professional ) treatments using validated apps. The biggest challenge for this will lie in getting a sufficient amount of relevant data and taking care of major ethical (not technical) questions.Eric van der Hulst, IMEC
Connectivity just can't be a privilege for people in the richest countries. We believe that connecting everyone in the world is one of the great challenges of our generation, and that's why we are happy to play whatever small part in that that we can.Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook
My goal is to scale our fund's focus on mental and physical well-being and make it accessible to entrepreneurs globally. Hence, I'm eager to connect with potential corporate sponsors to support our mission.Marcel Muenster, Gritti Fund
Investments by governments, health care and educational institutions in mental health care programs for young people are essential. Young adults are need to be made aware of ways to take care of their mental health. World Health Organization
What impact would innovation in the area of Personalised Medicine have on the daily lives of patients? Enormous. it would tailor the treatment on an individual basis and therefore deliver a greater chance of succes.Peter Kapitein, Inspire2Live
Not only are the possibilities now here to bring the right treatment to the right patient at the right time, but huge possibilities also exist when using new tools and unimaginably large amounts of healthcare data, not only for diagnosis and treatment, but also for prevention.Beata Jagielska, Polish Alliance for Personalized Medicine
School environments are sorely lacking up to date insights into new digital support tools, this is compounded by a mass general overload of digital products and communication making it exceedingly harder to cut through the communication clutter.Tobias Wernius, SpeakUP
A lot can be done to build resilience to prevent mental health problems among young people. Prevention starts with awareness and understanding early signs and symptoms of mental issues. World Health Organization
If we want Europe to catch-up with the US in terms of innovation financing, stay competitive and develop more European champions, we need to support its most innovative companies and cutting-edge technologies. This is what we successfully have started to do with the EIB venture debt financing solution.(blank)
A food waste reduction hierarchy-feeding people first, then animals, then recycling, then composting serves to show how productive use can be made of much of the excess food that is currently contributing to leachate and mathana formation in landfillsCarol Browner
As the costs of the technology continue to drop we anticipate that this technology will become accessible to everyone, meaning that the whole of society will benefit from its potential.Tom Stubbs, Chronomics
Chemotherapy for common cancers can cause death in ~1% treated patients and severe toxic effects in 20-30% due to their individual genotypes. We can predict likelihood of death and toxic effects with a high degree of accuracy.Jane Meaney, Oxford Cancer Biomarkers
Our technology will allow cancer immunotherapy to be effective on tumors that are not responsive to the current immunotherapeutic regimen. This will open new avenues and help growing the pool of potential cancer patients that can benefit from immunotherapy.Alexandre Motta, IMcoMET B.V.
Energy Storage is not recognised enough by governments; regulation for consumers need to be changed; specifically net metering. In NL, as soon as we generate more renewable energy, energy storage will become a more important topic.Dirk-Jan Middelkoop, Eneco
