Ideas wanted: Healthy Companies – Healthy Regions

The Salzburg ideas platform Open Innovation Salzburg is once again looking for creative ideas from the population. This time, everything revolves around the topic of “healthy companies, healthy regions”: Incentives for more exercise in companies and communities, upgrading existing offers or completely new ideas. Join in!

The morning bike ride to work, the walk to the coffee machine in between or the run after work along your favourite route – the possibilities to integrate exercise into our professional and private everyday life are almost unlimited. Despite a multitude of initiatives to promote a healthy lifestyle, there are still few health-promoting combined offers for exercise, nutrition and stress management that can be seamlessly integrated into everyday professional life and individual lifestyles. Especially the home office boom triggered by the pandemic requires new solutions and ideas, which will be presented in the new ideas competition “Healthy Companies – Healthy Regions: New ways to a vital self” on the Open Innovation Salzburg platform can be submitted by all creative minds. Let’s go!

Your ideas are wanted!

The competition targets the areas of New Work & Green and Blue Spaces: How, for example, can new (digital) information and coaching services be designed in and around the workplace that promote personal physical activity behaviour? What incentive systems motivate employees to exercise more regularly?

In addition to workplace health promotion, nature is also becoming increasingly important as a place of recreation. Ideas are needed that support the growing health awareness of the population and tourists: New (digital) offers in communities, the upgrading of existing offers for tourists and locals or playful offers are just a few examples of health-promoting offers.

Ideas competition: How does it work?

Starting on 10 May, all interested parties can submit their ideas for health promotion in companies and regions on the platform for six weeks. Afterwards, the community on the platform will evaluate the submitted ideas before the best ideas are awarded by the expert jury according to creativity, degree of innovation and feasibility. The most innovative ideas and the most active members will win great prizes and the opportunity to implement the ideas together with the partner organisations.

Who is taking part?

The ideas competition is supported by numerous organisations that want to implement the ideas – also together with the idea providers. In addition to the research project Connect2Move, the Wüstenrot Group, Greyhound, Fit2Work, Abios and Frischluftfitness also support the process as experts in health promotion.
