Research Results Presentations: Global Design Project V: KU & NCKU Joint Design Workshop / Design for Convivial Communities

February 20th, 2020

In 2019, we held workshops at Kyushu University and National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan in September and November respectively. These workshops focused on the lifestyles of local residents (primarily the elderly) and aimed to foster service design which utilizes IoT technology. We will now hold eight presentations which discuss the results of these workshops.

In addition to presentations by students from both universities, we will also first hear a guest lecture by Professor Akira Kondo of Kagoshima Women’s College and a special lecture from professor Chia-Han Yang of National Cheng Kung University, both of whom helped support and guide this project.

Anyone is encouraged to join, so we hope to have many participants at the presentations.
