Our ageing population is increasing, and we are living longer. Issues around how to age well are more important than ever before. Solutions to this challenge require understanding the need for human-centred and interdisciplinary approaches to designing of technology. In particular, designing around smart devices and voice control has much potential for elderly users.
We’re seeking interdisciplinary teams to address specific problems at the intersection of Digital Health and Ageing Well, and design transformative solutions. Presented by RMIT University in collaboration with Telstra, the Challenge invites your team to tackle this real-world issue. At least one member of each team must be either a student, alumni or staff of RMIT.
Priority will be given to proposals focused on human-centred approaches to smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to ageing well.
Submit your proposal to win $10,000 and shortlisted entries each winning $5,000.
