MyNeighbourhood is celebrating the close of a successful three day project meeting in the Danish city of Aalborg. Hosted by the University, a MyNeighbourhood pilot partner, the interactive and collaborative meeting comprised a series of discussions and hands-on workshops to further develop the co-design work undertaken by the pilot partners. From exploring potential gamification processes to creating service scenario maps, the Consortium worked closely together to ensure that the platform architecture for the MyNeighbourhood pilot services, as well as the delivery processes and sustainability mechanisms are all based on the needs, thoughts and ideas from the stakeholders within each pilot neighbourhood.

Highlights from the meeting included an Aalborg pilot tour, where the Consortium visited assisted living facilities for citizens with brain impairment. There, the team met with a range of stakeholders from occupational health students to stroke charity volunteers, to understand how the MyNeighbourhood solution will enable the different actors in the neighbourhood to work together to solve societal problems.

Updates from each of the key workshops will be posted on this site over the next week along with an overview of initial pilot service concepts.

The next project meeting will be held on the 4th and 5th of September, when the Team will brave the British weather to visit the Birmingham pilot site.
