Activities per year
Seven gerontechnology innovation projects spanning nineteen years were considered in terms of project activities, collaboration and management. The projects we considered were: PLANEC, OTIS, Care in the Community, SAPHE, SOPRANO, Smart Distress Monitor and COACH. Three interviews with project partners identified the nature and goals of the project, the composition of the team members, and the challenges, solutions, successes, and failures. Thematic analysis revealed three common themes spanning the projects which are likely to be issues in other technology innovation and research projects. The themes are navigating boundaries, succeeding at “things you’re not very good at”, and managing disparate teams. In this article we discuss the factors contributing to these thematic concerns, and present solutions that were helpful for the projects in the expectation that the knowledge generated from those working experiences is transferable to other projects that involve the intersection of technology development and social concerns.
