Steered by an international and prestigious committee, the AgeingFit conference programme is designed to address
the main issues of the healthy ageing and senior care sectors: from major financial and regulatory aspects to the latest innovations in health, nutrition and care.
The programme is organised around 5 tracks addressing the challenges of innovation for ageing well, from prevention to care.
TRACK 1: Scaling up health innovations in the silver economy
This track aims to provide the silver economy players with a fresh look at the innovative healthy ageing policies,
funding sources and investments to navigate a changing market, to identify opportunities and to innovate successfully.
TRACK 2: Prevention and nutrition for active ageing
Good nutrition is key to the health of older adults. The challenges of their nutritional needs, of their sensory food perception and appetite, offers an increased potential for innovation for researchers and food manufacturers. This track aims to give insight into the latest innovative products, scientific breakthroughs, and nutrition market opportunities, and to explore the eating behaviours of older adults.
TRACK 3: Diagnosing and treating age-related conditions
While ageing itself is not a disease, it is a risk factor for a range of conditions as people age. This track will look at ongoing research projects and developments in understanding the mechanisms behind frailty and age-related conditions, how to diagnose and target a range of common late-life diseases and how such research can lead to better prevention.
TRACK 4: Innovations in residential care settings
How are residential care settings responding to the demand of a growing ageing population? What type of innovation is happening in long-term care? How are institutions adapting in the way they provide care and in their interactions with stakeholders? This track intends to review the most recent initiatives, the new collaborations, and the pioneering organisational models at a European scale.
TRACK 5: Technologies and services for ageing well at home
As most of the ageing population aspires to age in place, this track focuses on the challenges to access care and preserve independence at home. What are the innovation opportunities in building a care system that both meets older adults’ expectations and keeps them safe? To what extent are we reassessing the whole living space and designing age-friendly solutions?
