Jean-François Delage, Vice President in Innovation & Research, McCain, joined the AgeingFit steering committee 2019!

After graduating from a Chemistry engineer degree in the National Graduate School of Engineering Chemistry of Lille in 1984, Jean-François Delage started off his career by working at Procter & Gamble. From a Department Head to a materials Flow Director in the company, his actions driven for sustainable results lead him to Peaudouce-Molnlycke Health Care Company as a Supply Chain Director in 1994. For more than two years, Jean-François will  look for unconventional solutions to uncover Business opportunities and generate added value proposition customers and consumers all along the entire supply chain.

With efficiency & effective execution, Jean-François works hard to deliver against the commitment. That’s why, in 1996, the French native is hired by the European Subsidiary of McCain Foods where he will apply his knowledge to the chilled potato business. The people centric supply chain director will soar during a twelve year career in the company. Today as the vice president in innovation and research, he discovers, creates, develops and successfully commercializes potato centric opportunities that brings growth, differentiation and innovation for McCain as an international potato powerhouse.  He designs an innovation process and excellence in execution for successful Go to Market with entrepreneurial leadership as well as to create an innovative climate for McCain.

But his professional expertise isn’t the only tool propelling him to the top. Delage is people centric. He teams-up, communicate openly & relentlessly and distills trust. His work shows that he isn’t afraid to take risks.

Jean-François Delage is dedicated to bring the best innovation solutions to McCain including nutritional values, one of the challenges of food sector.

And the winner is… Triple W!

During this 2nd edition of AgeingFit, 11 innovations were honored this last 7th February, 2018.

Among these 11 innovations, the company Triple W introduced DFree and won the Pitch Innovation Prize.
DFree is a wearable device which can predict when somebody needs to go to the bathroom. It analyzes the change of the bladder size by ultrasound sensors to predict the timing of urination.

The Silver economy covers many products and services using technologies (home automation, sensors, connected objects…) to cover the needs and demands of seniors over 50.
The sector deals with the heterogeneous and difference of consumption between working retirees and dependent older people and evolves within a complex financing ecosystem that does not facilitate a clear definition of the sector stakeholders relationships.

Can we predict that the Silver economy will become a fully-fledged sector of activity where companies currently involved, would feel included, despite the diversity of their activities?
What are the current initiatives to make the Silver economy a clearly established economic and industrial sector?
What will be the future initiatives to make this sector clearly economic and industrial?

That is a subject as delicate as it is interesting, that we will be happy to debate with the plenary session dream team on 6th February from 11.30 am to 1.00 pm.

Americans may be warming up to the idea of using unmanned aerial vehicles — or drones — to deliver Amazon packages or take pictures of unreachable places like remote mountain ranges or hurricane-decimated landscapes.

But what about using indoor drones to help older people get their hands on a bottle of medicine that’s in another room?
Sound like an outlandish idea? Naira Hovakimyan, a roboticist at the University of Illinois, isn’t laughing.

Hovakimyan recently received a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to explore the possibility of using small drones to perform simple household chores.

NSF picked the right person.

Hovakimyan recently told The New York Times that she believes drones will become an everyday fixture — as ubiquitous as cell phones — in the homes of older people. Within a decade or two, she says, indoor drones will be reaching under the table to grab an object, cleaning chandeliers, and weeding the lawn.


AgeingFit is delighted to host the IGAM congress for two half-days during the 2018 edition.
The congress theme will focus on “What’s new in geriatrics and gerontology ? News from the sector” and will take the form of conferences, round tables and posters.

More information soon.
