We invite you to be part of this collaboration – for the sake of patients, healthcare providers, industry and our society.

The PiPPi Community of Practice

Welcome to address your healthcare challenges with us

PiPPi provides an open innovation environment, a multi-professional community of practice, for everybody with an interest in addressing healthcare challenges. By bringing a wide range of experts together, we can join forces to improve healthcare and create new digital health and care services.

Upload your unmet need – and find future partners

PiPPi can help connect community members for the purpose of broadening networks and aligning members across challenges, problems and opportunities of mutual interest. Once a member uploads an ongoing challenge, participating members can engage and offer their insights and knowledge in order to design and formulate new innovative functionalities.

Members will also have the opportunity to learn the best strategies in order to realize new solutions through collaboration around different steps of the path, such as innovation procurement.
