IFA Masterclass: 'The Competitive Advantage of Ageing' Prague 2012
Monday, 23 January 2012

ActiveAge alongside its Newcastle stakeholder group has been asked to prepare a Masterclass for the 11th International Federation on Ageing Conference entitled 'Ageing Connects'. The conference will take place between 28th May and 8th June in Prague.

The Competitive Advantage of Ageing is a custom designed programme, prepared exclusively for delegates of the 11th Global Conference on Ageing. It has been developed by a team of researchers and practitioners to provide an expert insight into the collaborative models and strategies that are helping deliver city-wide change, in response to the challenges and opportunities presented by an ageing society.

The two part masterclass is based on 25 years research into economic step change and draws from case studies and the first-hand, front-line experience of practitioners in ageing-in-place change programmes.

The BusinessLab team will be supported by contributions and insights from government, business, academic and third sector representatives of Newcastle upon Tyne, the home of one of the UK's leading clusters of knowledge, experience and innovation in science, technology and the economics of ageing.
