Over the last 12 months NESTA has been working with innovators, investors, commissioners, entrepreneurs, business leaders, policy makers and more to champion a new approach to ageing innovation in the UK. As the summer approaches, together with Aging2.0, we’d like to get together with you all again and catch up on your work in the ageing space.
We’re planning a summer evening drinks and networking event, from 5.30 - 7.30pm

Join the team at Nesta, leading design thinker Rama Gheerawo of the Age and Ability Lab at the Royal Society of Arts, Stephen Johnston, founder of Aging2.0 and many more to discuss where next for ageing innovation.
Agenda for the evening:
