The vision of the Customer-oriented Wellbeing and Health Services innovation hub is to be a nationwide developer and forerunner in the field of health care and social services. We develop, concept and test new customer-oriented services, products as well as business experiments and pilots.
The innovation hub brings together actors from different fields and sectors - companies, research institutes, cities, organizations, residents of the area as well as Metropolia’s students, teachers and other experts - to learn and study together and to experiment and create solutions to accelerate the development of the field of health care and social services. We operate in an ecosystem based on the principles of partnership, reciprocity, transparency and trust.
At the core of our innovation hub’s operations are
- holistic, individual, and ethical encounters with people
- promoting equal inclusion
- prevention of exclusion and inequality.
The main functions of the innovation hub are RDI-projects as well as learning and development environments HyMy Village - Wellbeing and Health Services, Turbiini Business Accelerator and Metropolia Proof Health for pre-clinical testing, validation and verification.
In these learning and development environments, innovations and services are created in inspiring cooperation. In an authentic learning environment, we provide students and the society with the skills that are needed in the future.
