About this Event

As the Australian society ages, what role can technology play – specifically advances in smart sensing – to ensure we age well both at home and in aged care settings? The NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) warmly invites you to register your interest to attend the NSSN Ageing Forum on Thursday, 18 February 2021.

The morning session will provide an opportunity to hear from government and industry on the challenges they face in delivering services to an ageing population that demands quality in later life. Across three panel sessions, we will ask what are the problems and gaps that need solving and where innovation can lead to better health outcomes and lower costs.  In the afternoon, a “think tank” format will bring stakeholders together to jointly devise practical, innovative solutions. Our objective is to form collaborative R&D projects capable of securing government, industry and NSSN funding.

For more information, including the speaker list, please consult the Ageing Grand Challenge Event page on the NSSN website.
