Challenge A

„F4.0 – A facility to forge the future faster“

Proposed by


Because of the demographic change care demands are rising. Because of a lack of workforce technical support of care processes has a great potential to increase efficiency and decrease workload. However to invent new smart technical solutions or at least to implement existing ones in all day care processes is very time consuming and risky. Only a close connection between health professions, IT-industry (and others), science, education and patients can accelerate this process, enhance acceptance and lead to new innovations.


How should a facility look like where all relevant actors can try existing and invent new digital and supporting systems for health care processes together?

Actual Challenge

Create a concept of a facility containing rooms with different purposes (e.g. experiencing existing technology in different settings, developing new technology, experience new processes, co-working or presentation) and required technical infrastructure (e.g. 3D-printer, care robots or smart boards). Explain your concept with scenarios that show how the facility can be used. Show how knowledge transfer and prototyping can be accelerated.
