There is an increased awareness that the success of innovation in healthcare is hindered by the fragmentation of various types of knowledge across organisations and communities. As a consequence, there have been numerous initiatives to develop spaces where different communities engaged in healthcare can interact and share knowledge with the explicit goal of fostering medical innovation.
