The healthcare system is feeling the weight of an ageing population, a continuous growth in chronic conditions and greater time pressure. Digital services innovation is needed in order to solve these numerous and complex challenges. ‘E-health’ portals, telemedicine and self-monitoring are just a few among many digital services that have changed health care in the past decade fundamentally.

Based on these experiences, how can we develop digital services even further? Join this summer school in which lectures, workshops, and prototyping work is mixed. You will work in interdisciplinary groups to design innovative digital services based on cases given by external organisations.
