Submission open for participation in the World JAIN Challenge

Prototypes and product descriptions can be submitted for the World JAIN Challenge (WJC) from now on until January 28, 2022. The WJC 2022 is a public competition for developed or prototyped technical products and services based on Artificial Intelligence. It concerns products that support the quality of life and self-reliance of people with memory problems or dementia and their informal carers and that will support professionals and informal carers in providing optimal care for their loved ones.

The selected finalists will present their product prototype or full-fledged product on the 23rd, and the 24th of March 2022. The announcement of the winners will be on the 6th of April 2022.

The WJC will combine worldwide the knowledge of people with memory problems or dementia, informal carers, and healthcare professionals which will lead to improvements in dementia care. The WJC will bring all people involved together, from different countries, to form a World learning community, in which we learn from each other and inspire each other. Together we can take innovative steps in healthcare and thereby improve the lives of people with dementia and their informal carers.

The WJC is organised in close collaboration with INTERDEM and the INTERDEM Taskforce Assistive Technology, Alzheimer Nederland and Alzheimer Europe.
