Workshops: Knowledge Management Model
WP3 GA3.2: Developing Knowledge Management Model
22nd November 2019 & 10th January, 26th May and 19th June 2020
1st workshop on development of Knowledge Management Model
In order to contribute to the growth of the silver economy (oriented towards the needs of the elderly) by promoting innovations and development of new products and services, Klaipėda State University of Applied Sciences on 22 November 2019 organized the first events
Seminar on Knowledge Management Challenges in the Silver Economy –
Knowledge Management Model Development (for the health community)
During the events, with the participation of representatives of science – business – government and the elderly themselves, the process of developing the Knowledge management model (KMM) was initiated and implemented by a team of Klaipėda State University of Applied Sciences and external experts. KMM will be a useful tool for managing the whole evolution cycle of the innovation process, making full use of research knowledge and turning it into products and services with high growth potential in the silver economy market.
The events were organized within the framework of the Interreg Baltic Sea Program project “Supporting Smart Specialization Approach in Silver Economy for Increasing Regional Innovation Capacity and Sustainable Growth (OSIRIS)”. OSIRIS International Partnership represents state-science-business participants from Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Denmark and Russia, bringing together everyone’s experience, resources and knowledge to share experiences and learn how to apply smart specializations to exploit the silver economy in the Baltic Sea Region addressing the global challenges of an aging society.
3rd Knowledge Management co-creation workshop in Klaipėda State University of Applied sciences
Klaipėda State University of Applied sciences organised 3rd Knowledge Management co-creation workshop in Klaipėda, Lithuania on 26 May 2020. The aim of the 3rd co-creational workshop was to verify Knowledge Management, the draft Model. The visual representation and short description of the draft of KMM were presented during the event. The aim of the 3rd co-creational workshop was to verify Knowledge Management, the draft Model. The visual representation and short description of the draft of KMM were presented during the event.
The event where Klaipeda State University of Applied Sciences, together with other representatives of government, science and business, continued to develop the knowledge management model for the Lithuanian health community and its adaptation to the open innovation ecosystem, took place under unusual conditions when the world and Lithuania were experiencing a pandemic crisis under the measures of social distancing. Nine workshop members from local authorities, seniors’ organizations and business participated by using ZOOM platform in this event.
Working under challenging circumstances of social distance, however, was productive and concentrated allowing verifying draft model and gathering the necessary information and knowledge for further development of the model.
4th co-creational workshop on June 19th 2020
On June 19th 2020 team of experts from Klaipėda State College completed and validated the Knowledge Management Model in the Health Technology and Biotechnology Open Innovation Ecosystem in the 4th co-creational workshop with the participation of government, science, business and society representatives.
Since November 2019, by taking part in a total of 4 co-creational workshops, participants helped experts to develop a universal tool to manage the innovation cycle in the open innovation ecosystem.
The purpose of the knowledge management model is to manage the whole cycle of the innovation process at national level, involving all regions, central and local authorities, business and science organizations (state-organization-individual), open to all, transforming knowledge into products with high growth potential in the market. The model responds to the smart specialization of health technologies and biotechnologies, but can be applied more universally and more widely.
The event was broadcast on the Facebook account of Klaipeda State College.
The knowledge management model is an intermediate stage and result of the implementation of the project “Supporting Smart Specialization Approach in Silver Economy for Increasing Regional Innovation Capacity and Sustainable Growth (OSIRIS)” (OSIRIS, No. # R080) funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Program 2014-2020, in which Klaipėda State the college participates as a partner.
