The conference will be held at the Clarion Hotel & Congress, located at Brattørkaia 1 in historic Trondheim. The conference theme is “Measures to achieve better quality of life and active healthy aging”. From the website, the conference “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.” More information is here.
