19 March 16:00 - 18:00Openlab

Join us for this meetup organised by Openlab and Famna!

Sweden, and most European countries have a health and social care system that consists of a public, a for profit and a non profit sector. But surprisingly the non profit sector in Sweden is very small compared to other countries. In this meetup we will explore this topic and discuss opportunities how we can increase the number of contracts that non profit social service providers can obtain in public procurement.

Join us and meet Ella Bohlin (SLL), Filip Wijkström (Handelshögskolan), Ulrika Stuart Hamilton (Famna), Stefan Nilsson (Ersta Diakoni) and Aisha Mussa Gaas (Somaya Women Shelter) who all will share their experiences in ‘non profit health and social service’.

Presentation format - ‘Five by five’

Every presenter will get five minutes and five slides to share their story. As we are many that will attend to hear your thoughts we have a limit of 5 presentations per meetup.  

Openlab and Open Innovation

Openlab is a creative space that brings people together to find innovative solutions to challenges we face as a society. Our event series ‘Share, Mingle and Inspire’ is centred around open innovation and will give guidelines how to share. Openlab is in favour of open innovation because we believe business and innovation are going in that direction and that we are also forced by societal and technological change to do so. 

So, why not start with attending ‘Share Mingle and Inspire’ and be part of the movement. You will get surprised how many people will support and share their experience with you and how it will profit your own goals.

Famna and non-profit healt care

Famna represents the many non-profit, ideas and value based providers of health care in Sweden. Famna’s objective is to highlight the added values and the quality that these providers – our members – supply to health and social care in Sweden. This sector exists and thrives alongside the two more often discussed, i.e. public care providers and private profit-making organizations, but this third sector deserves more attention and a more level playing field.

Join us here! 

Please send an email to share@openlab.se if you want to be one of the presenters and share your story about ‘Non-profit health care’!

Share, Mingle & Inspire!

Aisha Mussa Gaas

Somaya women & girls’ shelter

Our main challenge is the constant struggle for continuing and sufficient grants. The limited annual grant does not cover all the needs of the organization and the funded grant from The National Board of Health and Welfare is not permanent. Another challenge is when the rights and needs of children and women are neglected or not taken seriously. Yet another challenge is finding appropriate housing for the survivors after the shelter period.
