Kalasatama wellbeing piloting programme launched

An open call for the Kalasatama wellbeing piloting programme has been launched to seek digital solutions that support wellbeing and health of residents of the Kalasatama district of Helsinki. It offers small and medium-sized companies an opportunity to develop solutions together with users and the partner companies in an authentic urban environment.

The challenge seeks answers to two questions:

  • How can residents improve their personal wellbeing and health on a daily basis?
  • How can the urban environment support the health and wellbeing of residents?

The target groups for the experiments include the residents of Kalasatama, private wellbeing service providers, healthcare professionals, the customers of the REDI shopping centre and Kalasatama Health and Wellbeing Centre.

The call is open until 15 February 2018 and the programme will run for 12 months. If you would like to apply for it, please submit your offer via an online form. The maximum value of a single pilot offer is EUR 8,000.

Based on the offers, the expert jury will select a maximum of 10 teams to co-develop their solutions at the Co-Creation Jam on 7 March 2018. The refined pilots will be then presented to the expert jury, at the Pitching Afternoon on 13 March 2018. As a result, 3–5 piloting sprints will be selected and experimented in the Kalasatama district during spring and autumn of 2018. Some of the pilots may be scaled up for use also elsewhere in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

The total value of the procurement in the Kalasatama Wellbeing programme is EUR 40,000.

You are welcome to read more and apply for the program.
