Abstract

The demographic revolution, rapid aging in Europe has raised the creation of innovation market as one of the most important elements in the European strategy. During 2006 VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland carried out a campaign called the Idea Movement of Aging Citizens, where mobile service ideas were collected from aging citizens for open use. The ground for the campaign was the fact that the aging persons are the best experts of their own needs and should thus have more say in the development of new mobile services. Around 4300 ideas were collected in 13 innovation workshops in Finland. About 750 aging citizens participated in these workshops. This paper presents experiences and lessons-learnt of using innovation workshops as a method for activating aging people to work as idea generators for mobile services.
