To improve the quality of design for vulnerable generations, the EU funded project DEVICE includes the creation of a design award addressed to design students within its main objectives. As a response to this, this spring in April the best interaction design students will be selected to win the DEVICE design award during the SIDER’13 conference that will take place in Aarhus, Denmark.
The most relevant works- papers, posters and demos - focused on the DEVICE user groups – children and/or elderly – will be judged in terms of level of innovation, human centered approach, social relevance, design methodology and quality.
In addition to this, also the degree of empowerment of society by means of technology, which is the main theme of the conference, will be taken into account. The winner will be awarded with a diploma and a NEXUS 7 tablet.
