lifetech.brussels, EAHSA and Startup Weekend are very proud to announce the first thematic Startup Weekend Ageing Population€.

Ageing population is one of the greatest challenges facing society this century. The increasing numbers of elder persons raises various questions about the way society can take care of them in an economical sustainable way. With a dense network of hospitals and rest homes, and one of the upcoming topics in the region being e-health, the Brussels-Capital-Region has a role to play in the evolution of care for the elderly.Therefore, lifetech.brussels wants to raise the awareness about opportunities that the so-called Silver Economy can raise, in collaboration with the European Association of Homes and Services for the Ageing (EAHSA).
