The co-creation workshop series started in Austria. Future users and technical developers created the first drafts for the “care app” and the “remote care assist” under the direction of WU. In several rounds of workshops, employees and clients of Hilfswerk Niederösterreich as well as family caregivers met with computer scientists from the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt and the software company ilogs. Following the Walt Disney method, the participants “dreamt”, “designed” and “criticised” initial ideas for the technologies to be developed and contributed their wishes, needs and suggestions.
