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 Club, 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 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 announcement of the winners will be on the 6th of April 2022.
The event is organized for people with memory problems or dementia, informal carers, healthcare professionals, and others interested in these topics. The WJC 2022 is a competition in which an independent jury determines which is the best technical prototype or fully-fledged product of the World
