MyHealth - Staying Healthy during Studies at the KIT

Project description

From 2017 to 2021, the Methods Laboratory of the House of Competence (HOC)   and Institute of Sports and Sports Science IfSS , in cooperation with the Techniker Krankenkasse (TK) health insurance company, are developing a pilot-type student health management scheme (Studentisches Gesundheitsmanagement - SGM) that is geared to students’ everyday life.

The aim is not only to record the life situation of students, but also to uncover different typical students’ relevances. On the basis of these findings and in conjunction with other findings, health-promoting measures are developed that meet the needs and everyday habits of the students as far as possible and ideally integrate seamlessly into their everyday lives.

Duration: 2017 - 2021
