Over the last 12 months we’ve been working with innovators, investors, commissioners, entrepreneurs, business leaders, policy makers and more to champion a new approach to ageing innovation in the UK. As the summer approaches we’d like to get together with you all again and catch up on your work in the ageing space.
We’re planning a summer evening drinks and networking event, from 5.30 - 7.30pm on 16th July here at Nesta, 1 Plough Place, London EC4A 1DE.
Join the team at Nesta, leading design thinker Rama Gheerawo of the Age and Ability Lab at the Royal Society of Arts, technology guru Stephen Johnstone of Aging2.0 and many more to discuss where next for ageing innovation.
Agenda for the evening:
5:30 Join us for a selection of summer drinks and an opportunity to network
6:00 What will retirement look like in the future?
