”Digital Wellbeing Sprint is an excellent course for students from all fields. It was amazing to solve real problems with real companies!” Tiina, nursing student
Digital Wellbeing Sprint is an intensive course where students from multiple areas of study work together with health and wellbeing companies from both public and private sectors. Multicultural teams develop user-friendly digital solutions that the healthcare service providers can use in real working life. We believe that an encouraging environment and cooperation leads to the best solutions for both students and companies!
Digital Wellbeing Sprint is organized by 3AMK – Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia Universities of Applied Sciences. The course is available for all the students from these schools free of charge.
