Speaker information

Prof. Gill Livingston, Keynote speaker, We have 10 speakers from UCL, Osaka University and many other institutions. Please see the below links for more information.

The society of ageing populations presents various challenges globally and to all generations. Japan’s experience as such a society, with the world’s highest life expectancy and its great need for solutions, exemplifies the urgency of the problem. As UK organisations also recognise challenges and opportunities of the ageing society, Japan and the UK are actively cooperating and having discussions on this subject. As a part of such UK-Japan interaction, UCL-Japan Youth Challenge organises this symposium in collaboration with Osaka University. Experts who are tackling the ageing issue in various fields will present their work. Topics encompass biological/medical science, engineering and social science, including ageing biology, nutrition, dementia, policy design, healthcare facilities, electronic devices, energy/resource and ageing communities.

This event will be followed by a reception at the UCL Wilkins Building, South Cloisters (18:00-20:00).
