Medical University of Lodz was selected for funding in the first call for proposals in the European programme Interreg Central Europe 2021-2027. HealthLabs4Value Project, coordinated by Hungary, received funds for innovation potential enhancement. In the transnational cooperation, 11 partners from the Central Europe, will be engaged in pilot activities to implement innovations in health care institutions according to Value Based Healthcare and Open Innovation 2.0. Each pilot partner hospital will develop their own living laboratory i.e. Living Lab ecosystem. The project objective is a strategic shift in the process of innovation implementation  in health care with a lasting impact and the needs and goals of all the stakeholders in mind.

The major participants of the projects include: MUL Living LAB coordinated by Anna Lipert, PhD prof. of MUL (substantive management of the project) in collaboration with Łukasz Łukawski, head of Department of Health Care Systems, who is in charge of the implementation of innovative solutions in health care systems. They are engaged in the deployment of living lab methodology in 5 regions of Central Europe in cooperation with regional groups in each of the involved countries including i.a. Central University Hospital whose relevant activities are supervised by prof. Paweł Ptaszyński. The newly designed method of solution implementation will facilitate the full parametrisation of the process of innovation implementation as well as enabling the assessment of the impact and decisions concerning modernisation in health care co-created by all the partners. Scientific and implementation studies in public health care sector will allow for improvements in health care standards in particular.

It is the second project by the Medical University of Lodz that has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund. As a University we do not only contribute to the development of science and students education but we also the implementation of innovation ideas in regional  health care system, especially in public health care providers.

What is a big value of the project is an entirely different approach to the implementation of health care modernisation. I would venture a statement that we can witness innovations ‘squared’: together with our partners from the Central Europe we will develop and test innovative implementation methods!
