WP4 GA4.1: Deployment of Smart Silver Labs

10th March 2021

 

Establishment of Smart Silver Lab in Lithuania

 

 

The purpose of this workshop was to discuss the Regional Smart Silver Framework (SSF) validation results with external stakeholders from Quadruple Helix sectors (Academia, Policy Makers, Business and Senior citizens), and to agree on its structure and content suitability for the further development of the regional Smart Silver Lab (SSL) in Lithuania.

 

Variety of external stakeholders (16 in total) from Quadruple Helix sectors representing a senior citizens association “Bočiai”, Lithuanian Biotechnology Association, Lithuanian Innovation Center (LIC), Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA), Klaipeda City Municipality, Klaipeda University, Kaunas University of Technology, charity organization “Lithuanian Caritas“ attended the workshop.

 

During the workshop, all Quadruple helix actors discussed about Smart Silver Framework (SSF) testing results, the changes to be done, and about additional information that should be included in the structure. All stakeholders agreed that SSF content and structure accuracy is a stable foundation for regional Smart Silver Lab (SSL) establishment, and it will be a valuable system for all innovation actors who are willing to develop a better environment for future opportunities.

 

 

Functionalities of the Regional Smart Silver Lab in Lithuania

 

 

The aim of this workshop was to agree upon launching the Smart Silver Lab (SSL) and discuss the roles and functions of each quadruple helix actor in the Silver Economy innovation ecosystem.

 

Variety of external stakeholders (16 in total) from Quadruple Helix sectors (Academia, Policy Makers, Business and Senior citizens) representing a senior citizens association “Bočiai”, Lithuanian Biotechnology Association, Lithuanian Innovation Center (LIC), Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA), Klaipeda City Municipality, Klaipeda University, Kaunas University of Technology, charity organization “Lithuanian Caritas“ attended the workshop.

 

All participants discussed the roles of each innovation actor in the SSL; their future tasks, what processes they need to implement, and how they will contribute to each task and process. Participants agreed that this ecosystem will help to create more innovations for the aging society, but it is very important to find the right institution in Lithuania which will take ownership of the regional Smart Silver Lab. There were many valuable inputs to the functionality of SSL and very relevant experiences and advice regarding the dynamic future of the SSL network, the activity of its elements, structure, regional direction of smart specialization and its participants, and the importance of cooperation among these participants in creating innovations in the context of Silver Economy.
