Clarify is looking for elderly participants

Team Clarify has developed a virtual tour through Munich and is now looking for elderly participants.

The team intensifies its investigation on technology acceptance among the elderly. They developed a Virtual Reality Tour around Munich with 360°-pictures of famous places, for example Marienplatz, Olympiapark and Hofgarten. Seeing a 360°-image creates a feeling of actually being in the place you see – that way, especially older adults who are not as agile as they used to be can go on a little adventure without leaving the safety of their own home. Furthermore, people can also listen to some interesting facts about the places they see while doing our tour.

Nominate your granny, parents or neighbors and give them a virtual tour around munich's sights!

Projects

During the 20-month scholarship, the development and implementation of project work is the focus of activities. The topics are proposed independently by the scholarship holders and are interdisciplinary. During the project work, the team members contribute their skills and continuously expand them.

The groups are encouraged to develop solutions independently. They are accompanied by mentors (active or retired professors) and tutors, both professionally and personally.
In the initial phase of the project work, a hypothesis underlying the chosen topic must be developed and tested with scientific methods. The team then derives ideas for implementation from the research results, which have high practical relevance. Throughout the entire time, the group members contribute their expertise and deepen it at workshops and seminars.

In doing so, they acquire further interdisciplinary competencies and strengthen their soft skills.
