Often nursing staff and people in need of care do not have access to the best ideas put forward by companies, start-ups, and the design industry. The first tuesday initiative was developed to change the situation by offering a platform to help improve the connections among the care sector, start-ups and design as a way to ensure innovations in the care and elder assistance sectors are anchored sustainably.
“The coronavirus situation has emphasized yet again the demand for better ways to carry out various tasks in the care sector. In many cases, details need to be determined and improvements need to be made to products used every day. Innovators with design expertise can offer compelling ideas,” says Dr. Silke Claus, Managing Director of bayern design.
On the first Tuesday of every month, people active in the care sector and representatives of companies, start-ups, and the design industry come together in a digital setting to develop practical solutions. In every session innovators representing offerings and a case representing demand will be introduced. The results will be presented in 2021 during Munich Creative Business Week (MCBW) and at the Trade Fair for Assistance to the Elderly (Altenpflege-Messe) in Nuremberg.
