About the Summer School
Researchers have long known that happiness and health go together. Studies show how individuals can actively influence their own health and well-being. Numerous interventions and techniques, often with the help of technology, have been developed to help promoting a healthy and happy lifestyle. In this track, we will address a couple of questions: How can we keep older people active and independent? How can we help people cope with a chronic disease? What role can technology play to support health and well-being? What makes people happy? How can we change unhealthy behavior? Inspired by insights from health sciences, positive psychology and eHealth, this course will help you answer these questions. You will work on several cases related to health and well-being, with the ultimate goal to boost health, both physically and mentally.
To attend the summer school, you pay a standard fee of €750. This includes:
- A tent to sleep in
- Course materials
For those not comfortable sleeping in a tent for a week, we offer different accommodations for additional costs.
Not included in the fee are personal expenses like travel costs (plane ticket, train ticket, etc.), travel insurance and other expenses, as well as accommodation other than a tent.
We offer several accommodation upgrades, including a log cabin and a hotel. A tent (including air mattress and sleeping bag) is included in the standard fee. Read more details about the accommodation options.
Please check the International Office of your University if scholarships are available.
