Healthy Ageing

​Growing up and ageing in good health, that is what Healthy Ageing is about. It is not only the healthcare field which is involved with healthy aging, technological developments can also contribute to a healthy lifestyle in children, adults and seniors. By combining disciplines such as healthcare and new technology, the Healthy Ageing programme offers a new and innovative approach. Innovations include recent developments in the provision of health care, the growth of e-health (information and communication technology in health care) as well as in special-needs or modular housing.

Summer school

During the summer school you will investigate, together with students from other countries, how people can age in a healthy way. As life expectancies increase, so does the importance of reducing the number of illness years. Improved treatment methods are being developed to this end. This intensification of healthcare is raising the cost of treatments. However, by using smart technological and non-technological innovations, we can optimise the quality and implementability of the care and keep it affordable.


In this summer school you will look not only at aspects of physical, social and mental health, but especially at how care provision can be optimised. How can you shift the focus for curing diseases towards self- management, positive psychology, maximising one's own capacity and sense of empowerment? How can care be organised more efficiently and effectively? How can designs be more oriented? What technological aids can be deployed to ensure that seniors can live independently for as long as possible while maintaining a good quality of life? Or how can children with a propensity for becoming obese be educated to eat healthy and nutritious food?

Further more you will find out about life course psychology and the positive influence of directing one's own behaviour, impact of taking control and responsibility of ones own behaviour. You will gain insight into wider societal issues and ethical dilemmas. You will further explore the possibilities that technology offers for the development of new health care concepts.

From the beginning of the summer school you will work in a multidisciplinary team on the project assignment within one of the four of the innovation labs Healthy Ageing. These assignments will come from external customers, which means that you will be working on real issues from practice.
