There are two types of partners in the consortium. Procurers, responsible for health and care service delivery, looking to introduce innovation into their services and willing to adopt the STOPandGO methodology in current procurements. Procuring partners are supported by knowledge partners, with expertise on eHealth technologies, interoperability, semantics and policies who design the methodology, assist in Local Market Consultations and help with the dissemination and exploitation of STOPandGO outputs. The consortium is led by Smart Homes. Other knowledge partners are the North West Coast AHSN, Italian Federation of healthcare trusts and municipalities (Federsanità ANCI), The Telecare Services Association, Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Agència de Qualitat i Avaluació Sanitàries de Catalunya and Knowledge Transfer Network.
