This work describes a multidisciplinary project developed during a four-day period, full time, in May 2018. About 130 second year bachelor students from different courses at Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanze UAS), The Netherlands, worked in mixed-team groups. Students were presented with a public health problem that should be solved using a technical solution, in a healthy-ageing context. The result should be an innovative health-related product, which should also consider economic and design aspects for future commercial purposes. Final presentations were performed to a jury composed of three external evaluators, who named the three best projects. During the whole project, students were highly motivated and actively seeked for solutions to the proposed challenge.
