HANC – Healthy Ageing Network of Competence

Under the leadership of the SDU – Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, this project brought together the Muthesius University, the Univeristies of Applied Sciences in Kiel and Flensburg, the State Association for Health Research in SH e.V. and the WelfareTechRegion, the Odense University Hospital and the SDU – Forskerservice. The start of HANC was in January 2013 and the end in December 2014. The mission of HANC was firstly in the collation and use of new knowledge in the field of “Healthy Ageing”. This knowledge was to be transformed into tangible products and services for the active ageing of citizens in the region.

redefining safety – Designing for Age

The superordinate question of motivation served as the starting point for the project work of the Muthesius University in the HANC project: how can one motivate older people to lead an active and healthy life? The type of question required the explanation of basic ideas, e.g. “being old”, “getting old” and “motivation”. The work was based on the one hand on the understanding of age in its diversity and complexity and on the other on the investigation of possible approaches to motivation. www.hanc-project.net/
