Age’in: the european challenges to tackle for better age in place
Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022
10.00 am – 6.00 pm
With 1 in 5 people over 65, the European population is one of the oldest in the world. Indeed, according to Eurostat, the proportion of the population over 80 years of age is expected to increase 2.5 times by 2100, from 5.8% to 14.6%.
In order to face this demographic wave, the understanding of home issues by the elderly is a key element. To this end, the Age’in project consortium has been working for nearly four years on this subject, in contact with the elderly, to build together the solutions to be provided to them to improve their quality of life and enable them to remain living at home for longer. Robotics, home design, innovative housing models, or prevention solutions; all the actions carried out by the project’s partners, which will allow you to better understand the issues to be addressed for a better support of seniors, will be presented during this event!
This project is supported by the European Regional Development Fund in the framework of the Interreg 2 Seas Program.
Registration is free and mandatory to attend the conference. This registration also gives you access to the exhibition area of the event and to the Innovation Gallery.
