The Stanford Center on Longevity is looking for university-affiliated participants to submit designs for products and services that have the potential to improve the lives of older adults who may be experiencing the symptoms of cognitive impairment: memory loss, having trouble learning new things, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life. They may also design for the caregivers and family members whose lives are impacted by the condition.
Preliminary designs are due by [highlight] December 2nd [/highlight] . Finalists will be selected and notified by January 15th and provided with a $1000 award to help further their design. They will also be provided with $1500 in travel expenses to come to Stanford in April, where they will have the opportunity to present their designs to interested companies and investors. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 designs, with [highlight] $10,000 going to first place [/highlight] .
Full details about the challenge and how to submit designs can be found at http://longevity3.stanford.edu/designchallenge/ . They’ve also posted online videos of the recent kick-off event including talks by thought leaders and entrepreneurs already working in this space.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kenneth Smith, Director of Mobility Division at the Stanford Longevity Center.
