A Joint Venture Lab

A one week joint “Venture Lab” will be organised in Lisbon, involving all the potential and relevant local actors for the setting up of a Health Tourism Living Lab, including both academia, local stakeholders and business representatives (e.g. care centres, private clinics, hotel and accommodation structures, SPA and wellness centres, tour operators, local governments, companies producing assistive living technologies, local tourism enterprises, university faculty members, etc.).

The aim of the Venture Lab is to : a) build capacity in transferring research and innovation to the market and industry through experimental learning; b) build a network among Portuguese local key stakeholders for the setting up of a Health Tourism Living Lab; c) strengthen the participation of the business community in research and innovation activities also by capitalising knowledge transfer and exchange from the leading institutions and countries involved.
