Jury over onze werkwijze

Dankzij de Best Collaboration Award kwam Carebro Breinaansturing in het nieuws. Onder andere in de Groninger Internet Courant:

"De werkwijze van Negotica, waarbij de onderzoekers samenwerken met patiënten, wordt geroemd door de internationale jury van de Best Collaboration Awards: "Het is juist het delen van kennis tussen patiënten, zorgverleners, technici en wetenschappers geweest dat als bron van grote inspiratie heeft geleid tot verschillende nieuwe inzichten voor alle partijen. Carebro heeft een andere manier van denken veroorzaakt..."

Hoofdprijs voor de beste samenwerking

De ´Best Collaboration Award´ is een prijs die gaat over exceptionele samenwerking en richt zich met name op het stimuleren van ondernemers in de creatieve economie.

De aanleiding was het internationale project Creative City Challenge. Daarbij ging het om voorbeelden van samenwerking tussen een creatief bedrijf en een andere partij. Beide moesten actief zijn in landsdelen liggende aan de Noordzee. Wij deden graag mee, omdat wij konden laten zien dat je succesvol in de samenwerking kunt zijn en tevens samen een magnifiek eindresultaat kunt neerzetten.

REPORT OF THE JURY - BEST COLLABORATION AWARDS

The jury members have made their decision and we are now happy to congratulate Carebro Brain Control for the

BEST COLLABORATION 2011.
 
The jury states:
“Carebro Brain Control is a Dutch project that deals with new technologies to improve everyday life of people. The scientific research for this special project Carebro was done by a team from the faculty of mathematics and natural sciences of the university of Groningen, the pilot run by De Noorderbrug, a healthcare organization, specialized in people who need care 24/7, in this case who were paralyzed from head to toe. Carebro is an open connectivity platform that allows to connect to any kind of equipment or standard. The technicians of Carebro got in touch with paralyzed people for the first time in their lives and experienced the collaboration as something extraordinary. The sharing of knowledge between patients, carers, technicians and scientists was a source of great inspiration and led to various new insights for all the parties. Carebro definitely induced another way of thinking and helped changing everyday life for the patients in an unexpected way. Open systems and connecting people has become the motto of the company, which has proven that working across boundaries in terms of organizations, people, and disciplines leads to results everybody involved can benefit from.”
Angelica Kaus, University of Groningen, Netherlands

“The Carebro Project put forth by Negotica Development Projects aims at developing a solution to control the living environment by human brain for people paralyzed from the neck down. The innovation process led to an open connectivity platform that allows connecting the human brain to any type of equipment or standard, exceeding the boundaries of an incremental innovation.

Remarkable positive aspects of this project are:
-         Bringing together science with the needs of the physical challenged
-         Focus on everyday applicability and simplicity
=> Might be making a huge impact in the future
-         Open connectivity platform invites developers to participate; possible multiplication of Carebro Project outcome
-         Selling point: Serious solution combined with entertainment
-         Actively sought to work with physical challenged people, using their experience to improve the connectivity platform incorporating their interests and special needs
=> shows a high degree of mutual respect, tolerance and trust
-         Strong shared creative vision, pursued perseveringly
