Meetings between healthcare organisations and the installation sector

CareTechLab

HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht organised a number of network meetings (Networking for Growth) in collaboration with the Opleidings- en ontwikkelingsfonds voor het Technisch InstallatieBedrijf (OTIB). In these meetings, the installation sector engaged in discussion with healthcare organisations and knowledge was shared about the needs that exist when providing care to the elderly.

Objective

This project encourages the installation sector to work more closely with healthcare organisations. We also want to engage in discussion and share knowledge about the needs that exist when providing care to the elderly.

Results

Knowledge was shared between healthcare organisations and the installation sector.

OTIB and members of UNETO-VNI met representatives of healthcare organisations. These healthcare organisations were able to raise questions about the fitting-out of their properties.

The meetings resulted in collaboration between HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and the company Beeldzorgadvies. and the initiation of a project about the Health-kit.

Duration

01 November 2014 - 30 November 2015

Approach

The Networking for Growth project was launched further to the Building physics interventions for the well-being of frail elderly project.

The networks for the BEZO project and the OTIB were approached to attend these meetings.  

Three meetings were organised, in which the knowledge gained from the BEZO project was shared with the installation sector and interested healthcare organisations.

These meetings were attended by various pioneering healthcare organisations and a number of care-focused installation companies.
