Few days have gone since the official date, but the facts are there: already 4 candles to blow for the first coworking space immersed at hospital, within the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital. Four years of meetings, discussions, events, creation of projects, challenges, synergies, in short, 4 years of community building and amazing interactions.
On March 10, 2017, the Association LallianSe pour l’Innovation en Santé was born, known as LallianSe LAB. It has started with just two of us, then 3, then more, with bits of string and not a lot of means, but with goodwill and enthusiasm that this “homemade” space was born and that we made ourselves happy to create an atmosphere aligned with our values and our image.
If working in a collaborative space is now trendy and chosen by many companies, immerging such an approach within a hospital and at the center of patient care was, and remains a challenge. Yet in 4 years, we have been able, with investment and agility, to build a place that stimulates creativity, promotes sharing of knowledge and experiences, within the same working ecosystem altogether creating links between different and torn apart worls.
Indeed, today the LallianSe LAB offers a range of diversified solutions: collaborative experience, networking, support, one-off services, events … we are a living lab, initiator and promoting interactions for the ultimate benefit of patients.
These first achievements and the success of these initiatives have encouraged expansion of this concept and potentiality to open a second – mandatory as the first is full! – LAB within hospital Bichat -Claude Bernard on the GHU APHP.Nord Université de Paris. Opening planned in 2021: proud and excited!
