Event description

Description

The Innovation in Healthy Ageing Project will respond to a number of challenges and opportunities around the impact of ageing populations, changing lifestyle choices and the rise in chronic conditions, which are placing increasing pressure on healthcare budgets but are also driving a transformation in how healthcare services are delivered.

We have a £450,000 Challenge Fund to help Devon businesses and social enterprises to collaborate and innovate new products or services that promote healthy ageing.

One way that we are producing solutions is by bringing together key stakeholders in digital health, assistive devices, health and wellbeing as well as the life sciences sector in Devon.

We are inviting the public, patients, carers, business, health, and social care professionals to join us at this event to develop ideas and challenges for healthy ageing that will be targeted by the £450,000 Challenge Fund

The event will involve presentations and examples of existing healthy ageing products and services that have already come to market. This will be followed by a facilitated roundtable discussion, group work, and of course lunch.

The outcomes of the day will form the basis of the £450,000 Challenge Fund applications and contribute towards creating relationships between the organisations and people that attend.

The Innovation in Health Ageing Project is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund, in partnership with Devon County Council, the South West Academic Health Sciences Network, Business Information Point and the University of Plymouth.Innovation in Healthy Aging project partners
