The AGE-WELL Network of Centres of Excellence is leading the way in developing technologies, services, policies and practices that improve the lives of older adults and caregivers. Building on its successes to date, AGE-WELL has launched a major renewal initiative that will set the research and innovation agenda in the technology and aging field in Canada from 2020-2025. AGE-WELL has identified eight key “Challenge Areas” through which it will drive innovation in the sector, influence policy and practice and invest in R&D. The Challenge Areas were generated through a review of Canadian and international policy priorities related to older adults and validated through an extensive stakeholder review process. Join us to learn how we can tackle these important challenges together in order to improve the lives of older Canadians and their caregivers, today and in the future.
