Want to contribute to happier and healthier lives?

Many people have questions about themselves: who am I, what makes my life meaningful? How can I live well with others and how healthy am I? Because technological and global developments change our lives drastically, health care workers and social workers feel the increasing need to develop services and products that improve healthy living, mental wellbeing and happy ageing. During this exchange programme, you will investigate these topics and work on your own future proof product or service that contributes to a happier, healthier and more inclusive society.
