Jul 2024: Transdisciplinary Quality of Life Summer School

We are pleased to announce the upcoming “Digital Innovations for a Happier, Healthier Aging: A Transdisciplinary Training” as part of the Quality of Life Technologies Lab’s Summer School. This program will be held from July 1-5, 2024 (9-17h, daily) at the University of Geneva – Campus Battelle (Carouge). This program is a key component of the AGE-INT.ch project, aimed at strengthening Switzerland’s global expertise in innovative solutions for an aging society.

The course is designed to accommodate a diverse range of participants, including medical professionals, caregivers, solution providers, startup founders, and students at various academic levels, from Bachelor and Master via PhD to faculty members. We foster a transdisciplinary approach, making this course accessible to individuals from different fields, including, but not limited to, social, public health, medical and rehabilitation sciences, political sciences, economic, legal, and environmental sciences, computer science, and engineering.

Furthermore, we extend a warm welcome to anyone passionate about the potential synergy between digital technologies and the aging population, especially those eager to actively contribute to our ongoing research projects as study participants and users of the digital solutions being developed within the QoL Lab (QoL.unige.ch).

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the actionable opportunities and challenges related to digital technologies for the aging population. They will also receive valuable insights into the design, implementation, evaluation, and regulatory certification of these solutions, guided by local, national, and international experts in the field.
Successful completion of the course will earn participants 3 ECTS credits.
