World Conference on Gerontechnology

18 May, 2020 @ 8:00 am 20 May, 2020 @ 5:00 pm UTC+2

The Conference theme, “Measures to achieve better quality of life and active healthy aging“, addresses the potential power of technology to both enhance quality of life older people and prevent age-related disabilities through health promotion. Technological solutions can also support independence and meaningful activities, and they can prevent loneliness, boredom and helplessness. This aligns with the main goals of gerontechnology which is divided into seven achievements: Satisfaction and enjoyment; Prevention; Support; Compensation; Caring; Care support; and Care organization.

Technologies may provide new and innovative ways to achieve better lives and quality services for all users and stakeholders. Quality of life is a core concept throughout life and efforts early in life might influence older age. To enhance active healthy aging, technology and digital literacy could be promoted by learning adequate skills before the onset of potential age-related disabilities. Therefore, gerontechnology includes not only technologies adopted for older people, but also technologies that are universally designed to be utilized throughout life.
