In June OSIRIS team from ITMO University finalized and validated the Knowledge Management Model in the ICT and Well-being Open Innovation Ecosystem in St. Petersburg on the 3rd of July . Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the events took place virtually via Zoom and Google Docs platforms. The aim of this series of the workshops was to jointly design an effective tool to manage knowledge flows and main actors of the innovation ecosystem. As a future practical outcome, we aim to succeed in creating products and services for the older generation. The agenda of the workshops was built taking into account both the practical value of the Knowledge Management Model in creating the products and services for the silver aged generation and critically reflection of the previously developed Knowledge Map. As in previous events, the round table was held in the format of a brainstorm with the participation researches and sociologists, experts of innovative infrastructure and business, whose expertise was relevant for the project and helped to gain knowledge about older consumer`s needs and capacities to meet them limited by the priorities mentioned in the regional strategic documents: ICT and wellbeing.
The Knowledge Management Model is an intermediate stage and one of the outcomes 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 ITMO University participates as a partner.
