LIV_IN launched an online working group on inclusive innovation and organized a series of workshops taking place in Spring 2021. The first one was be focused on co-creation with families and the second on co-creation with blind and visually impaired people.
An experience by De Monfort University with families from Leicester co-creating future home technologies in the context of LIV_IN, and
The PULSE exhibition, an initiative by the Experimentarium science center, which serves as model demonstrating how science centres can involve socio-economically less advantaged families (as well as more privileged families) in co-creating user-driven health changes/ exhibitions.
The experience by the Siemens Accessibility Competence Center conducting several co-creation workshops with blind and visually impaired people in the context of LIV_IN, and
The "Sensory Assistive Technologies for Impaired Persons" project by the Italian Institute of Technology, a great example of “inclusive innovation” – with people affected by sensory disabilities (with a special focus on visual & hearing impairments), where they worked together with technology makers & researchers, policy makers, end user associations, clinical validators, and industrial partners.
