Reaching for global excellence 1. What is Active for Life all about?
Reaching for global excellence BSR Active For Life Provide innovative cross-disciplinary solutions and transnational business partnerships & concepts TO KEEP THE AGEING POPULATION AN ACTIVE PART OF SOCIETY
Reaching for global excellence Why Active for Life / Societal challenge i.The average age of population is rising rapidly in several nations, and the dependency ratio in Europe has started and is prognosed to look alarming. This is the most distinctive demographic change that is known to continue, along with increasing urbanization of world population. ii.With a widening sustainability gap, it is crucial to redesign services to provide better impacts and at the same time be affordable. The growing ageing population represents strongly rising purchasing power. iii.Quality of life indicators will complement and balance economical measures in the future. We need innovative commercial solutions to promote biological, physiological and social well-being and to control/ease existing problems.
Reaching for global excellence Why Active for Life / BSR competitiveness 1.There is already a well-known and proven good level of physical health and well-being in Northern Europe to build upon. 2.We have innovation capacity in the Baltic Sea region to increase the competitiveness of the area by providing innovative, globally competitive and effective transnational service models and business concepts to maintain or improve the quality of life in BSR Successful business through cost-effective services and higher level of research applications. 3.Transnational cooperation in Active Ageing contributes to the branding and attractiveness of the macro region to individuals and enterprises and provides a strong mutual springboard for accessing global markets.

Reaching for global excellence Organizational level: Open innovation Closed innovation principlesOpen innovation principles The smart people in our field work for us.Not all smart people work for us. We need to work with smart people inside and outside of our company. To profit from R&D, we must discover it, develop it and produce it ourselves. External R&D can create significant value: internal R&D is needed to claim some proportion of that value. If we discover it ourselves, we will get to the market first. We do not have to originate the research to profit from it. The company that gets an innovation to market first will win. If we make the best use of internal and external ideas, we will win. If we create the most and the best ideas in the industry, we will win. Building a better business model is better than getting to market first. We must control our innovation process, so that our competitors do not profit from our ideas. We should profit from others use of our innovation process and access the innovation process of others whenever it advances our business model. University of Århus
