WELCOME TO I4KIDS-EUROPE, AN INCLUSIVE AND INTERCONNECTED ECOSYSTEM TO BOOST PAEDIATRIC INNOVATION IN EUROPE!
i4KIDS is a paediatric innovation network that aims to boost the number of healthcare solutions designed with and for children. To achieve this, i4KIDS is mainly focused on exploring new ways to improve the health and well-being of children by creating an interconnected and mature paediatric innovation ecosystem. Therefore, this existing initiative, led by Barcelona Children’s Hospital Sant Joan de Deu (HSJD), is the ground base for i4KIDS-EUROPE whose functions are to:
To achieve the overall objective, i4KIDS-EUROPE will promote the creation of links among innovation leaders and strong innovators with emerging and moderate innovators in the paediatric healthcare field across the EU, to share their experiences, structures and procedures to have a stronger and more interconnected ecosystem.
By uniting all pediatric innovation actors across European countries, we aim to boost Europe’s efficiency and capacity for pediatric healthcare innovation to deploy existing innovations across European member states and associated countries at national, regional, and local levels, establishing ourselves as a reference in pediatric innovation based on a patient- centered model.
It will also identify which are the gaps and barriers of key innovation stakeholders and provide tools, connections and resources adapted to them, particularly engaging those actors who previously have not participated.
DIVERSE LEVELS OF INNOVATION
One of the first challenges that i4KIDS-EUROPE must face is mapping the Paediatric European landscape. The purpose of this questionnaire is to gain insights from all European Paediatric innovation actors, specifically from less-heard voices from emerging and moderate innovator countries. By participating, you will help us identify and understand the barriers that are hindering progress in paediatric healthcare innovation and shape the future of this vital industry.
We need your expertise and input to make a meaningful impact in this field to build a stronger, more equitable future for paediatric healthcare in Europe.
It should take less than ten minutes (our tests took eight). Thank you in advance for your contribution to this study!
