In the media: design graduate Belén García López, first Spaniard to win a Stanford University contest design

Belén García López's project , 'Asterisk', is a modular game designed to offer an adaptive treatment for dementia.

Belén García López, who graduated in designDegree in 2023 from the University of Navarra, never imagined that the product created for her end-of-year work would cross the pond to win the first award in a contest organized by Stanford University's Longevity Center. "I'm very excited," she assures. After weeks of preparing for the finals, on April 9, she competed with 7 other projects and hers, 'Asterisk', was the winner.

'Asterisk' has been the only physical finalist project (the others were all digital) and was chosen for this last phase among 228 proposals submitted by more than 100 universities from 34 countries. It is also the 11th edition of the competition and the first in which a Spanish university has participated.
