The Aging2.0 "Collective Intelligence" Workshop | Topic: Food & Nutrition

Mon, Dec 16, 2019, 1:30 PM (GMT)


Aging2.0 London, with the support of Ageing Research at King’s (ARK), is hosting the first of the The Aging2.0 Collective Intelligence Workshops on December 16, 1:30-5pm. This event will bring a people together around a shared interest in innovating food & nutrition to improve the lives of older people. It will identify the high level 'missions', sub-issues, key players as well as metrics and measures of success. 

Participants will benefit from a structured brainstorming environment on a topic of interest to them, receive the collected materials as output of the meeting and connect with others from across industry siloes. 

The eight Grand Challenges are key areas of innovation that have been identified by our 100+ Chapters around the world as well as our corporate partners, startups and older adults. Tackling them requires a systematic approach whereby we bring in ideas from around the world using an interdisciplinary, intergenerational and international approach. 

This “Collective Intelligence” event on the topic of Food & Nutrition is part of the Daily Living & Lifestyle Grand Challenge. It's an opportunity for our Chapter to harness their collective intelligence: sharing with each other and uploading results to the platform.
