2016-2017 DESIGN CHALLENGE
Each year since 2012, the Stanford Center on Longevity has challenged students around the world to design thoughtful products and services that improve the quality of wellbeing across the lifespan. This year’s theme is “Innovating Aging in Place” – developing solutions that improve the lives of those people who remain in their homes, often independently, as they grow older.
