About the Adoption Awards

The Adoption Awards recognise the work of adopters, and their technological suppliers, in implementing digital innovation for the benefit of patients in Active and Healthy Ageing.

By promoting adopters as leading lights in their sector, we plan to inspire other organisations to improve the delivery of health and care-related services. All this with the support of innovative technologies!

  1. Tell us your story before 20th December 2019. Apply online.
  2. Hear about the finalists by 30th January 2020. Three (adopter + supplier) teams will reach the final of the Adoption Awards ceremony.
  3. Take part in the Awards ceremony on 25th February in Barcelona at 4YFN. The three finalist teams will pitch their success story in a public session. Both adopter and supplier must attend the presentation.

Who is eligible to apply?

Teams of European adopters (typically, healthcare or social organisations, insurance companies, big corporations) and IT companies (who are solutions providers) are eligible. The teams will have been partners in jointly implementing an eHealth innovation. The partnership will have resulted in successful outputs in the area of Active and Healthy Ageing (e.g., through adherence to treatment, falls prevention, lifespan health promotion, integrated care, independent living solutions, age friendly environments…)

 

Evaluation criteria

The selection of the finalist teams will be based on the degree of innovation (how new it is), the impact on the delivery of health and care services for individuals (its effect or outcomes), its effectiveness (how mature and successful the project is) and the scalability of the idea (how easy would the idea be for other organisations to replicate).

 

Who is behind this initiative?
