BaltCityPrevention project meeting in Poznan – Preparing for our pilots
After two really intensive days of workshops and sessions the Public Health Authorities in the BaltCityPrevention project are prepared to start their pilot actions.
The first day in the City Hall of Poznan started with a Word Café where the project partners generated a lot of ideas which afterwards were discussed in plenum.
The day was finished with a cultural evening program organized by the City of Poznan.
A matchmaking brunch took place on the 5th of December in the Archaeological Museum.
Two Public Health Authorities from Poland and one from Lithuania held pitch presentations for the companies about their need for collaboration with private companies in order to cover their demand for services, technologies and support.
In addition a local company gave a pitch presentations as an example of what the private sector can offer.
The following brunch resulted in a lively conversations between the participants.
Current prevention measures are often ineffective, since the methods are not tailored to specific user needs. In BaltCityPrevention 14 partners from 7 countries will test a more participatory and user-oriented approach to develop and implement prevention and health promotion interventions.
New technologies will be employed in the planning procedures and also as innovative tools for prevention purposes. The participation of the users and the co-creation process are key elements of this new intervention model. The prevention interventions are offered by public health authorities (e.g. health care and social departments in municipalities) and address people with different health issues.
