The in-person 2020 Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge have been cancelled due to COVID-19. As a result, we will be holding a “virtual” version of the Finals, with winning teams being selected on April 7, 2020, which was the original date for the in-person Finals.
The Stanford Center on Longevity is pleased to announce eight Finalist teams for the 2020 Longevity Design Challenge. These Finalists were selected from 160 submissions received from 35 different countries. Teams will be awarded $1000 to develop their designs further and will participate in a virtual Finals event, scheduled for April 7th. They will compete for a $10,000 first prize.
By almost any measure, longer lives and aging populations are one of the defining trends of the 21stCentury. The Stanford Center on Longevity (SCL) Design Challenge reaches out to university students around the world to create awareness of aging in a younger generation, increasing their preparedness to design for this population and offering a low-risk, practical way to gain exposure to longevity-related opportunities.
