Week of Wearables


Come to a free inspiration day where you can meet, among others Anders Høeg Nissen from Harddisken, Carl Alviani from Ziba, as well as leading researchers and companies, all of which utilize the latest technology to make their products more attractive and intelligent.


25 November in Copenhagen


New markets and trends are arising within the wearable technology field. For both users and businesses, wearable technology presents an opportunity to find exciting ways to integrate technologies with our bodies and personalize our relationship with technology more than ever before.

In the Week of Wearables frontend researchers, writers and companies will present their view on this new field of technology. Entrepreneurs and developers will be showcasing their products and ways of working.

We will primarily be focusing on the domains:

  • Wearables and sports
  • Wearables and quantified self
  • Wearables and kids

As a special focus WoW will be working with the possibility of using wearables as a solution to integrating more sports in Danish schools, as the new school reform requires.

This is a follow-up on a ChangeWork workshop arranged by DDC partnered by the Municipality of Copenhagen. If this is your main interest, sign up under the development track focusing on kids.


Deadline for registration has expired.
