SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP
ON GERONTECHNOLOGY

Évora (Portugal) and Spain
2024

ABOUT

In most parts of the world, over the past 50 years, socio-economic development has been accompanied by large falls in fertility and equal increases in life expectancy. This phenomenon has led to a rapidly aging population around the world.

Increasing life expectancy presents many opportunities to individuals as well as the communities they live in. Older people can contribute to society in many different ways. However, the scope of these opportunities and the contributions will depend heavily on the health of these elder. In most developed countries, elders live their last years of life in relative good health. Although it is also true that many of the elderly suffer or are at risk of suffering cognitive and physical difficulties.

In the coming years, ensuring that the elders can enjoy the best possible health conditions will be one of the biggest social challenges. Addressing this challenge will require knowledge over the elderly life, the management of this knowledge, the provision of concrete and swift responses to their problems, etc.

Technology can be leveraged for assuring an improved quality of life for the elders.
