Frugal Innovation by Citizens for Citizens

Description du projet

L’innovation frugale par les citoyens pour les citoyens

La science citoyenne prospère à travers les disciplines scientifiques. Elle peut considérablement profiter aux chercheurs, aux citoyens de diverses origines, aux décideurs politiques et à la société tout au long de la chaîne de recherche et d’innovation. Le projet FRANCIS, financé par l’UE, exploitera la science citoyenne pour développer des innovations frugales (IF) qui permettent de créer des solutions de haute qualité abordables. Le projet procédera en relevant des défis d’innovation ouverte qui associent les distances géographiques et les contextes sociaux pour développer des IF avec des citoyens issus de pays développés, en développement et émergents. Une attention particulière sera accordée à l’inclusion des groupes marginalisés comme les personnes âgées, les familles nombreuses et les personnes ayant adopté un mode de vie minimaliste, tous étant souvent négligés par l’économie et la société.

Objectif

"The need for affordable high-quality solutions, so-called Frugal Innovations (FI), has never been more obvious than in the current global health crisis. This is also the time, where Open Innovation (OI) shows its full potential for their development. Just consider the various online challenges aimed at the development of frugal ventilators. These online challenges not only manage to tap into the creative potential of experts from around the globe but also help these experts to find their perfect macht of teammates for the job at hand and assist them in technical matters by offering industry coaching.

FRANCIS will use the ability of OI online challenges to bridge geographical distances and social backgrounds for the development of FI with citizens from two developed countries as well as four emerging ones. While most OI online challenges today target students and start-ups, FRANCIS will address society at large, the ""everyday joe/jane"", including marginalized groups such as the poor, the elderly, large families and people with specific lifestyles (""minimalists""). The consortium believes that their contribution, though often neglected by economy and society alike, is of major value for new product development, especially when aiming at Frugal Innovation.

To ensure their successful inclusion, FRANCIS will finetune the online platform and the communication material used in the challenges to the citizens' needs. Scientists will assist them in idea development, students will help with practical problems. Companies provide guidance during the challenges and ensure the FI's successful scaling at their end. Besides capturing the costs and benefits of the FI and assessing their impacts, FRANCIS will also run behavioural insights tests to learn more about the motivation and support needs of Citizen Frugal Innovators."
