JAIN’s multidisciplinary projects are developed in the form of private public partnership projects, involving end-users, people with amnesia and the system in which they participate; informal care, healthcare facilities, universities, high schools and the government in order to develop products that meet the demands of the end-users. To ensure that new scientific insights and the latest developed technologies are used in the projects, JAIN relies on its scientific advisory board and care specific governance support group.
JAIN considers lateral knowledge exchange between the Dutch leading R&D projects ABOARD, YOD, SPREAD+ and QoLEAD important, see page Dutch R&D projects. JAIN would like to ensure that scientific insights from these projects land in the robust learning JAIN network of healthcare institutes, knowledge institutions, spin-offs, start-ups and scale-ups, government, health insurers and investment companies, so that they can be quickly translated into innovative products and services.

Political Administrative Advisory Group Jain
JAIN’s Political and Administrative Advisory Group is made up of directors from renowned healthcare institutions. This sounding board group studies political-administrative topics in the field of care-related business processes between politics, policy, society and the implementation of regulations and is supported in this by the scientific committee JAIN.
The advisory group develops visions and strategies, for example on the following points of attention:
How renewed care processes, supported by advanced technologies, can be used to organize care more effectively and efficiently.How to maintain care for the elderly in the face of a shortage of carers.How the current health care system can be redirected so that it is appropriate to continue to guarantee good care for the elderly in the future.
By means of thorough problem analyses, this administrative committee sees the common flow within healthcare. This allows the committee to give direction to JAIN projects.
