AGE-WELL NCE is pleased to offer this exciting and innovative training event to AGE-WELL HQP across Canada. The inaugural summer institute’s theme, Living Well With Dementia, will be the focal point for a week of engaging workshops, lectures, and activities on participatory, user-centred design.
The AGE-WELL EPIC Summer Institute, 2016 will provide HQP with an unparalleled opportunity to work closely with expert mentors and develop a solution/technology to improve the lives of older adults with dementia. Throughout the week, HQP teams will work through the design process from problem definition to brainstorming and business models to prototyping, culminating in a “pitch competition” with cash prize.
AGE-WELL will book and cover the cost of accommodation (double-occupancy) at Le Westin for four nights plus breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks. Additionally AGE-WELL will arrange and cover the cost of roundtrip economy flights between your home airport and Montreal/Mont Tremblant. We will also arrange for shuttle service from those airports to Le Westin on Monday and again from Le Westin to both airports on Friday. AGE-WELL will not provide dinner costs or a per diem.
Requests for additional funding will be considered upon request. Please include details in your application.
