STEP 4 – CREATING
STEP 5 – IMPLEMENTING

Project Group – The objective is to create an innovative concept that contributes to society.  It helps to have a closer  look into different subject. There was a group of students that worked on a project and they found a place where there was a need for innovation. All of them had their own influence that results in an final creation.

Duvelhok – Thee was a brainstorm session in a creative environment. Talk over lunch about innovation and how to implement it in society.  Getting inspired by the Social Salon and Social Sofa’s.

Social Puzzle is an example tool to entertain people.

Creating pictures that stimulates senses. The object gives people the possibility to memorise old living environment. It is something to hold on and to look back at. Then a new concept was there: ” Talk-down-the-memory-lane.” This is a memory game that helps elderly people to deal with their lost.  Talking about the memories and draw them down on cards.

It is time to implement research and discoveries into reality.  The project group organises an event to practice the memory game with a group of elderly people living at Zonnehof Tilburg.

A positive reflection results into actual innovation and is presented at the ‘ Social Innovation Symposium’ at Tilburg University.
