- D2.1 : Business case(s) and prioritized list of common uncovered innovation needs
There are multiple methods to identify and assess needs, but we consider fundamental to base the methodology on the premise that those who are best-placed to see the problems of, or the inefficiencies with, a process or a service are those who work within the system delivering it on daily basis. At the same time, we know that the civil servants involved to deliver the service are typically too busy to consciously consider how the service could be transformed or could benefit from innovation, but they are skilled and perfectly prepared to do it. Here is necessary to make time to take them out of their usual working environment to participate to a brainstorming session.
- D2.2 : Needs elicitation through questionnaires and WIBGIs events with end-users
With the identification of a list of desired innovative solutions, which have to be validated in comparative terms and put in order of priority, on the basis of their expected costs-benefits, impacts and trends. The Business Case objectives is to validate and rank-order the perceived needs and to address the subsequent technological scanning activities.
- D2.3: Challenge brief and description of uncovered functionalities
The challenge and procurement must be described in detail to ensure, when published, a full understanding and comparability of the competing solutions proposed by the market in view of potential conversion into permanent services.
- D3.1: Comprehensive study of the state of the art techniques & technologies, including patent search results
The analysis of the state of the art at worldwide level, key activity in order to understand what technologies are currently available and used and what R&D projects are being developed in the area of healthcare associated infections prevention.
