What are the benefits of multistakeholder and policy collaboration for the health and care sector? Policy Officer Jaakko Aarnio analyses this and more in a pre-publication of the DG Connect Open Innovation Yearbook 2017.
In the article, Jaakko Aarnio presents the benefits of a multistakeholder and policy collaboration to the health sector. He also discusses the advantages of thematic Communities of Practice (CoPs) to foster growth in the context of healthcare challenges across the innovation chain.
