first tues­day in November:

dig­i­tal con­nec­tiv­i­ty in urban quarters

3. November 2020
10:00 – 17:00

Peo­ple in need of care and car­ers often do not have access to the best ideas from com­pa­nies, start-ups and the design indus­try. The ini­tia­tive first tues­day wants to cre­ate a plat­form for bet­ter net­work­ing of care, start-ups and design com­pe­tence, so that inno­va­tions in the areas of care and elder­ly care are anchored in the long term.

At the upcom­ing online meet­ing on Tues­day, Novem­ber 3 from 10:00 — 11:00, the top­ic of dig­i­tal con­nec­tiv­i­ty in the neigh­bor­hood will be addressed.

Nor­man Sahl from the The­len Group, a project devel­ope­ment and real estate port­fo­lio man­age­ment firm, will give an intro­duc­to­ry talk on the top­ic. The fam­i­ly-owned com­pa­ny group from Essen focus­es on the devel­op­ment, real­iza­tion, mar­ket­ing, admin­is­tra­tion and man­age­ment of real estate and is also active in the area of urban quar­ters through­out Germany.

Dr. Eileen Goller from the Pflegestützpunkt Schwabach (nurs­ing care base) for­mu­lates the needs and require­ments from the per­spec­tive of car­ers and peo­ple in need of care.

Frank Thiele, part­ner at the design stu­dio fac­tor prod­uct and respon­si­ble for strat­e­gy, will present solu­tion ideas. The goal of his work is to help com­pa­nies har­ness the full poten­tial of design. He sees design not as an end prod­uct, but as an activ­i­ty to devel­op solu­tions that inspire peo­ple, posi­tion brands and make orga­ni­za­tions more successful.

A sec­ond solu­tion impulse comes from Torsten Anstädt, man­ag­ing direc­tor of the start-up com­pa­ny mitpflegeleben. The ser­vice plat­form pro­vides affect­ed per­sons, rel­a­tives and providers* with answers to ques­tions on the top­ic of care and direct­ly com­mu­ni­cates region­al offers from ser­vice providers in the social economy.

On every first tues­day of the month, stake­hold­ers from the care sec­tor meet dig­i­tal­ly with com­pa­nies, start-ups and design­ers to devel­op prac­ti­cal solu­tions. Each event presents two inno­va­tors of offers and need. Results will be pre­sent­ed in 2021 at the Munich Cre­ative Busi­ness Week (MCBW) and the Altenpflege-Messe in Nuremberg.

The series is a coop­er­a­tion with the C&S Insti­tute, the Insti­tute for Uni­ver­sal Design and the Vin­centz Network.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the free online event is now open.
