GATEKEEPER Twinning – Exploring and scaling-up of best practices among regions
Ecosystems

The Twinning within the GATEKEEPER project (H2020) enables other regions and organization to get an idea of the project’s healthcare innovations implemented on site as part of the ongoing project. The HealthRegion CologneBonn together with the pmv research group as part of the Ecosystem Rhineland visited the Spanish project partner SALUD (servicio aragonés de salud) in early June.The Twinning has created several impulses that the representatives of the Ecosystem Rhineland will take back to their region in order to scale-up GATEKEEPER’s best practices.

The GATEKEEPER Horizon 2020 project is a European Multi Centric Large-Scale Pilot on Smart Living Environments. The main objective is enabling the creation of a platform that connects healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, and elderly citizens and the communities they live in, to
originate an open, trust-based arena for matching ideas, technologies, user needs and processes, aimed at ensuring healthier independent lives for the ageing populations.

During the 48-month project the deployment of solutions involves around 40,000 older adults, supply and demand side (authorities, institutions, companies, associations, academies) in 8 regional communities, from 7 EU member states.

What does the GATEKEEPER Twinning involve and what is its purpose?

A Twinning is an instrument which provides financial support to scale up best practices and key outcomes from the GATEKEEPER
project to other regions in Europe. Within the knowledge exchange activity, two representatives of the HealthRegion CologneBonn, Nathalie Wiegel, and the pmv research group, Carolin Heinen, visited the Spanish project partners SALUD (servicio aragonés de salud) in Barbastro in early June. In a two-day workshop, healthcare
solutions implemented in the GATEKEEPER project were presented and demonstrated during field visits.


One of the field visits took place in a facility for Alzheimer’s patients “Alzheimer Barbastro Y Somontano”, where the project partners demonstrated, how vital signs of those present at the facility are being collected and saved in the electronic patient record. At the second field visit at IASS (Instituto Aragonés de Servicios Sociales), the Twinning participants learned how a team of 40 volunteers, therapists, trainers and many more is committed to offering social activities and health care services for people aged 65+ everyday. With numerous impulses, that were collected during the Twinning activity, the representatives of the Ecosystem Rhineland will explore, how GATEKEEPERs innovative solutions can be implemented into their own region and beyond.
