AgeingFit, the European event fostering innovation for well-being in older age will return to Lille on March 11th and 12th, 2024, for its 8th edition. This annual meeting brings together more than 600 participants each year including care organisations, researchers, and investors. The event offers participants the opportunity to attend a variety of international conferences, to present their project during the Innovation Pitches competition, to increase their visibility thanks to the exhibition area and to schedule one-on-one meetings to meet future partners.

Conferences to tackle the main challenges facing the sector

In a world that’s constantly evolving and where the population is ageing significantly, the need to rethink the way we are dealing with ageing is becoming paramount. The conference programme of AgeingFit 2024 is designed with this objective. Structured in 4 tracks, it addresses the most important issues in the sector, and is a must for those who want to stay at the forefront of emerging trends.

A new conference track dedicated to social and societal innovations

This year’s AgeingFit programme introduces a new dimension focusing on social and societal innovations. It provides an opportunity to explore emerging issues and showcase the change-makers working on mental health and social inclusion topics. A first roundtable will be structured around the latest technological innovations to face the issues related to the mental health of seniors. Experts such as Shahnaz Hassan, consultant psychiatrist at Iron Rose Wellbeing, will present case studies and innovative solutions aimed at reconciling older people’s independence with their mental health. A second session will focus on solutions and initiatives for caring for seniors in rural or isolated areas. This topic presents specific challenges that will be addressed by experts. Among them, Iñaki Bartolomé, CEO of Ideable Solutions (an IoT company in the Basque Country which develops mobile applications and cloud computing systems, notably Kwido, a healthcare app designed to monitor the seniors) and Joana Portugal, Deputy Director and Head of the Active Ageing and Dependency Unit at Aproximar (a Portuguese social innovation cooperative). They will discuss the obstacles to be overcome in the field, as well as digital health tools that can improve care in remote rural areas.

Healthy ageing: from prevention to care

During these two days, discussions will also focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and age-related pathologies treatments. Experts will look at strategies and initiatives that support a holistic approach to the health of older people: a major challenge that makes it possible to tackle topics such as nutrition, personalised care, physical activity, and prevention strategies.

In a sector that is constantly reinventing, participants will also have the opportunity to dive into the development of innovations in the Silver Economy. Speakers will take the floor and share their experiences on how to access the market with, for example, the panel focusing on “Taking healthy ageing to the next level: Are new sources of capital investment the key and where to find them?”. These exchanges will provide an insight into access to capital investments, a key factor in the development and dissemination of innovation. Among them: Alexandre Faure, Founder and CEO at Sweet Home, Jordi Ferrer, Investment Director at Ship2B Ventures (impact investor focused on improving health and quality of life of vulnerable people) or even James Mayer, Partner at CABHI Ventures (Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation).

A talk will also be held on the design and creation of products, services and innovations technologies that must constantly respond to the evolving of needs of an ageing population.

In addition to these dimensions, the conference programme will also focus on innovation in the field of care in institutions or at home. Experts will identify barriers to the use of technology in these establishments and discuss the role of technology in addressing staff shortages.

The conference programme promises an unprecedented spotlight on the healthy ageing challenges. This meeting is a unique opportunity for professionals and innovators to collaborate, learn and shape the future of the sector.

AgeingFit, the event that goes beyond the borders of Europe

Each year, AgeingFit also gives start-ups the opportunity to present their project during the Innovation Pitches competition. For the second consecutive year, CABHI is supporting this competition and will award the first three winners with a prize, including a privileged access to a North American networking event.

In addition to these activities, AgeingFit allows companies to increase their visibility thanks to an exhibition area: an unmissable for those who want to present their innovations, exchange and to be close to the participants.

Over the last 15 years extensive clinical research has been conducted on photo-dermatology treatments using UV-free LED lighting. Many studies have been published that show the efficacy of blue light therapy for the treatment of skin diseases such as Psoriasis, Eczema or itching. New studies, not yet published, confirm the safety and effectiveness of blue light therapy for the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases such as elderly itching. The Phlecs Full Body Blue Research device that has been introduced last year after obtaining the medical CE certification. The device is currently used by dermatology clinics to do research on blue light and will be used in large nursing homes that have the facility to provide the treatment. Phlecs has initiated the development of a Full Body Home connected device that brings therapy at patient’s bed with 2 patent filings this year. This device will be launched in 2026, sold to nursing homes and home care service providers.

Phlecs is delighted to receive the Ageing Fit 2022 innovation award, for their Ful Body Blue Light device that leverages more than 15 years of clinical research and technology development originated at Philips. Elderly itching impacts significantly older adults’ quality of life and current treatments have important limitations due to overmedication, potential side effects and the time it requires to provide skin care.

Ageing Fit 2022 has been very successful for us, we have made many contacts with potential customers and partners.
