SRS at Aging Societies in Europe and Japan

The SRS project participated at the Aging Societies in Europe and Japan conference in Tokyo on 9-10th October. Organised by the European Commission, the Delegation of the European Union to Japan, and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, it looked at ways to help and provide for the ageing societies in Europe and Japan.

This event brought together experts and policy makers from the EU and Japan to share ideas and develop new strategies on how to improve care for the world’s increasing number of elderly people. The first day centred on the numerous social and economic challenges; the second day considered different responses provided by research and innovation, with leading EU and Japanese engineers and scientists presenting the latest in state-of-the-art senior citizen care solutions.
