On 28th September 2017, SEAS 2 Grow team has selected 8 innovations that will be supported by the Accelerator.
This selection comes from the 2nd call for projects of the Accelerator which has been launched in April 2017.
These innovations will benefit from co-creation sessions with users (elderly, healthcare professionals, caregivers) in the 4 countries (France, United-Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands), in order to explore users’ needs and add eventual new features. They will also be tested in lab testing and in real-life conditions at home or in nursing homes / residential homes dedicated to the elderly, to check their usability in the right user-context in the 4 countries. SEAS 2 Grow will also help these companies to identify early-adopters and define product-market-fit, in order to develop the product in the country which is the most suitable.
