On 11th May 2017 representatives of the STAGE consortium took part in the workshop organised under AAL2Business - business support action for AAL projects and companies within AAL projects. The workshop was entitled "How to build viable business models in AAL projects" and encompassed a variety of topics, from basic information on business models to workshops on creating business models for particular companies.
STAGE was one of two case projects for the workshop. The idea and objectives of STAGE had been presented to all participants who were then divided into two groups one of which tried to develop a primary business model for STAGE using the Business Model Canvas method.
It was a valuable experience for the STAGE consortium members which was represented by as many as three persons, including the project coordinator. Development of STAGE draft business model is in progress and it will be then consulted with experts during a couple of workshops. Finally, a final business model for the STAGE ICT platform will be developed that will allow clear commercialization of the service.
