The ProVaHealth project focuses on development of health products by SMEs through living labs. The CoSIE project - co-creation of service innovation in Europe- focuses on development of processes. The living lab approach has been used as the framework in that project to pilot a social hackathon.  The social hackathon is analysed as the enabler of social innovation through co-creation of public services and mobilizing community resources including less-empowered groups in a remote area in Voru county, Estonia. The living lab facilitates co-creation processes with end users and supports discussions with and the relationship between public, private, third sector stakeholders and ccommunity members which would have otherwise not occurred
