IP Healthy Aging in a global perspective, Groningen, The Netherlands
The world needs professionals who are capable of conceiving innovative solutions to unfamiliar situations and complex problems. In doing so, they enrich people as individuals and society in general. This International Programme aims to support students to find creative solutions by using
