EUROPEAN SUMMIT presented by Aging2.0 and Happy Aging

Aging2.0 HQ
May 24, 2017 / 9:00 AM

HQ

Europe’s rapidly aging population could be a major shock to the system... or alternatively a unique opportunity for growth and global leadership.

Aging2.0's first European Summit in partnership with Happy Aging brings together a focused group of innovators to connect across siloes and share best practices. Can you imagine anything else as important as helping Europe adapt and thrive? Do you want to be part of a new social movement connecting innovators in aging? Come for the networking, the content and the fun. Go to the one place where you’ll meet people from all across Europe with different experiences and perspectives. We'll be focusing in particular three of the 'grand challenges' of dementia, social isolation and livable communities. Aging2.0 is a community and you’ll be able to say you attended the first ever international Aging2.0 Summit. 

Join us to network, learn, be inspired and help Europe build an aging-focused ‘innovation ecosystem’ that can adapt and thrive in the new demographic reality.

FAQ's:

  • Who will be there?

    All of our favorite Europeans. The speakers are drawn from across Europe and across industries and are bringing a fresh take on some age old problems.

  • What's this about a Startup Bootcamp?
    The day before the Summit, on May 23, we're having a one-day bootcamp to work with local startups and help them navigate the the aging industry and the startup landscape. Aging-focused startups won't want to miss this!
  • Where is it being held?
    Hasselt, Belgium
  • Woah, that’s not London or Paris. Is it tough to get to?
    Not at all. Happily Europe's transport system works a treat. It's within a couple of hours from much of Northern Europe's major population centers. Jet into Brussels airport or glide into the train station and it’s a short, smooth 1hr train ride (roughly once per hour) and then a short stroll from the train station to our venue in Hasselt University.
  • Why Hasselt?
    Three reasons: It’s a veritable hub of innovation in aging and home of BioVille, Living Lab, Happy Aging and incredible innovators, Two, it’s where our co-host Geert Houben, one of Europe’s most dashing age-tech entrepreneurs (who’s just landed €4m funding) comes from. And third, they’re the most friendly people you can meet. Oh and four, you’ve probably not been there before - so live a little.

Agenda
9:00 am REGISTRATION
9:30 am WELCOME Kick off the day with an overview of the agenda for the day & introductions of the people behind the Aging2.0 European Summit. FEATURING • Stephen Johnston, Aging2.0 • Ingrid Lieten, Happy Aging
9:45 am PANEL: Integrated Care of the Future An inspiring session on integrated care of the future with an introductory keynote by the Flemish Minister of Health, min. Vandeurzen.
10:35 am KEYNOTE: Delightful Aging 'Delightful aging' is a new approach to the aging experience. Koen Kas will provide several innovative and uplifting examples that aging adults, family members and caregivers can learn from. We need a new attitude and mindset around aging - let's make it 'delightful'!
11:00 am STARTUP COMPETITION Introduction by Geert Houben, Founder of Cubigo and Belgian Ambassador for Aging2.0, about his experience building a successful aging-focused startup right here in Belgium. Top European startups will pitch their companies to a panel of expert judges for a chance to win $1000 USD and enter the Aging2.0 Global Startup Search Semi-Finals as a wildcard participant.
12:30 pm LUNCH
1:30 pm PITCH INTERMEZZO
1:45 pm KEYNOTE: Grand Challenge Overview Learn about Aging2.0’s new Grand Challenge initiative - a major focus on the innovation topics that matter most to the global Aging2.0 community - and the tangible, measurable outcomes that result from these important issues impacting older adults and the wider industry.
2:00 pm PANEL: Engagement | Connecting People Through Tecnology As we all know, social isolation can be as deadly as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. And while technology has the potential to bridge gaps and connect people across the world, recent studies have confirmed what many are feeling, that technology and social media in particular can also isolate and exacerbate loneliness. What should innovators keep in mind when designing for connection? Where does technology help more than hinder? Hear from experts using high tech and low tech to tackling one of the biggest challenges in aging.
2:35 pm PANEL: Cognitive Health | The Changing Shape of Diagnosis and Treatment Dementia is one of the fastest growing diseases, and a disease modifying cure is not yet in sight. However, technologies to diagnose, track and treat dementia are coming online fast, from wearables to VR headsets and beyond. Can alternative therapies such as music and VR really replace more traditional treatments? If our phones could diagnose when we’re starting to suffer from Alzheimer’s, would we want them to? Don’t miss this discussion on matters of the mind.
3:10 pm PANEL: Livable Communities | Building Healthy Communities Cities are generally designed by and for the wealthy and the young, meaning that older people and those in poor health and / or low incomes can get left behind. While the age-friendly cities movement has been a start, what does tomorrow’s healthy, connected, innovative age-friendly community look like? Now that we’re generating more data from all of our devices in our homes, cars and on our person, where does this all go, how is it connected, and what business models will emerge? Learn about new models and innovative ideas around successfully aging in community.
3:45 pm BREAK
4:15 pm PANEL: Investing in Senior Care Investors share their perspectives on investing in Senior Care and present one example in a duo presentation moderated by Pieter Vanherk (VOKA Health Community).
4:50 pm PANEL: European Landscape This powerhouse panel of experts will contribute their perspectives on the European Aging market trends, challenges and opportunities.
5:30 pm CLOSING: Reception
 

Improving the lives of older adults around the world.
