Innovation in Ageing Accelerator - Workshop #3

Wed, Feb 6, 2019, 9:00 AM (GMT)


We're supporting our friends at Innovation SuperNetwork on their Innovation in Ageing Accelerator Programme. This is a unique collaboration including the National Innovation Centre for Ageing, Newcastle City Council and Northstar Ventures.

The accelerator programme is aimed at businesses with the potential to develop solutions to the challenges faced by an ageing population and is offering £12,500 of investment and 6 months office space in the Biosphere building on Newcastle Helix.

This third workshop is a not-to-be-missed opportunity and includes some fabulous speakers!!  Notably, a US-based world authority, MIT professor, best-selling author and go-to person on business and ageing will be amongst the expert voices set taking part.  Professor Joseph Coughlin, founding director of MIT AgeLab, will be there in person and will describe to the audience the opportunities arising within the Longevity Economy. He will also provoke, encourage and stimulate creative thinking, new ideas and innovation around products and services for older people.

We're also delighted that Professor Coughlin will be joined by our very own Stephen Johnston, co-founder of Aging2.0!

Valuable practical insights and innovation-in-action case studies will also be presented by Home Group and ENGIE. All in all, this workshop, the third in the current series, will provide a unique and thorough in-the-round experience for Ageing Innovation Accelerator entrepreneurs, providing in-depth support to turn their ideas into reality.
