On the 13-14 November 2018, the University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre and the Dementia and Ageing Research Group will host the second International Masterclass on Dementia Care, Design and Ageing (IMDDA). IMDDA brings together experts from across the globe to discuss ideas from design innovation through research to policy development.
Last year’s masterclass appealed to a diverse and international audience of architects, industrial designers, policy makers, researchers, health and social care professionals, town planners and manufacturers.
The meta-theme for this year’s masterclass is ‘Divergent thinking in dementia: care, technology, policy and design’ delivered across two days of presentations, parallel sessions and networking events. The masterclass will also provide the space to continue the conversations that began last year, and will provide opportunities to share research and innovation.
Confirmed guest speakers are:
Professor Satoko Hotta, Keio University, Japan
Mr Ryoji Noritake, Health & Global Policy Institute, Japan
Mr Frank Ehrenberg, Marchese Partners International, Brisbane.
