Autumn Conference 2019 - Healthy Longevity

Opportunities of an Ageing Society

New Date: 15th - 16th October 2019

We would like to invite you to the next Tommy Flowers Institute Conference taking place from 15th - 16th October 2019, at Adastral Park, Ipswich. Please visit our events page as well, where we will publish the agenda and further information as we go along with planning.
 



Are you ready for the upcoming Tommy Flowers Institute conference on Healthy Longevity? 

Over the course of two days we’ll look at how we can exploit and innovate to the maximum so we explore and proactively address a number of key areas for what is described as ‘the UK’s greatest societal opportunity’. We’re delighted to announce speakers including
 

Within the UK, it is expected there will be 16.9 million people aged 65 or over by 2035 accounting for almost one in four of the population.  We are undergoing a fundamental change to our age structure, many people are having fewer children and living longer lives and as a result the average age of our society is on the increase.
 
This shift in structure isn’t just isolated to the UK, reports indicate nearly half the world’s nations have total fertility rates (TFR) below the replacement level of just over two children per women.  By 2050 the world’s TFR could potentially fall below replacement levels resulting in an older population demographic worldwide.

We would be delighted if you could join us for our 7th conference where we will explore what is described as ‘the UK’s greatest societal opportunity’.

Over the course of two days we’ll look at how we can exploit and innovate to the maximum so we can adapt to this change in demographic.  Subjects will cover impacts to society, economy and work, mental health and wellbeing, fitness advances to keep us healthier for longer and technology that will allow us to live in our own homes longer.’
 
Please look out for further details on our social media streams as we build out our agenda, places are allocated on a first come first serve basis therefore please register as soon as possible if you would like to attend this event. 
 
Note, there is no charge for this conference and places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
