Historical Background:

Created in 2009 by the French Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment, the CNR Santé (National Reference Centre for Homecare and Independent Living) is an association that brings together a large number of stakeholders focused on healthcare innovation. As part of the portfolio of CNR offerings, “PAILLON 2020” Living Lab fosters the emergence and growth of digital technologies in the domain of Homecare and Independent Living.

The name of the Living Lab is highly symbolical in two ways:

  •  The Living Lab is situated next to the river Paillon which takes its source up in the mountains and is fed by hundreds of streams on its way to the Mediterranean Sea. This river represents the paradigm that the CNR Santé would like to create for the community: enrichment by knowledge, sharing of good practices, and promotion of best products across the healthcare ecosystem.
  •  “2020” refers to the 10 years’ strategy proposed by the European Commission for the “advancement of the economy of the European Union, especially to improve access to finance for research and innovation so as to strengthen the innovation chain and boost levels of investment throughout the Union”.

The Healthcare Innovation Center that houses the Living Lab was launched in 2015 and is co-run by the Healthcare Directorate and the Nice Metropolis. The aim of the Healthcare Innovation Center is to establish an ecosystem of innovative companies, researchers and institutions focused on the field of ageing, autonomy, digital healthcare, as well as social innovations in health.
