Keep an Eye Social Intelligent Design Award

Many health care projects that are using the newest technology to support people getting older take their social setting as a given and thus do often not address the factor of social isolation. This is enhanced because elderly are no longer a part of our working community. How can we make sure that they are not caught in social isolation at home, or that they feel that they are a burden to the community? The "Keep an Eye Social Intelligent Design" project explores together with 15 elderly the possibility of "creating a new society" in which all generations are valued and needed, and in which the elderly exchange knowledge and skills across the different generations. The winning design team will receive a grant for to develop the design further, and if possible made production ready.

Award ceremony: Thursday 28 October, 13:30 - 17:00 hours, ID'10
