The MinD project brings together internationally recognized leaders from 13 organisations in 6 countries who will share and exploit their complementary knowledge, expertise and skills across design and dementia care. The goal is to share, advance and disseminate new knowledge of dementia care and designing for dementia care for use by other researchers, policy providers, care professionals and end-users in academic, non-academic and professional environments. The project will also create novel design and technical knowledge in the area of personal, interactive and environmental design solutions. This will importantly enhance and strengthen European design research as well as EU-based healthcare and ICT research.
