Event description
Join us for an insight into the research, products and services that are being developed to promote healthy ageing.

About this Event

The number of people over 75 in the UK today is one in 12. By 2040, it will rise to one in 7. We’re also living for longer and a third of children born now are expected to live to 100. This presents a challenge to health services, but it is also an opportunity for businesses and researchers who can help people to stay active and productive as they age.

Join us for an insight into the research, products and services that are being developed to promote healthy ageing. If you are a business or academic working in this field, this event will give you the chance to network with like-minded people, opening up the possibilities of future discussion and collaboration.

With speakers from across Kent and Medway this event will discuss innovations, present case studies and detail opportunities for businesses to engage in this key issue. Particular focus will be on the following 7 themes of Healthy Ageing

1. Sustaining physical activity

2. Designing for age-friendly homes

3. Maintaining health at work

4. Managing common complaints of ageing

5. Creating healthy and active places

6. Care support for people with cognitive impairment

7. Reducing social isolation

The University wants to collaborate to make a valuable regional and national contribution to long term Grand Challenge of the Industrial Strategy.
