SEEFA symposium identifies challenges to innovation in Ageing Better – it’s culture as much as tech
JANUARY 11, 2015
Summary: a symposium on innovation, technology and later life provides confirmation that many of the challenges to making use of tech for ageing better are organisational and cultural as well as technical. I found the SEEFA symposium last week on ‘Transforming not excluding – the impact of information technology and innovation on later life’ most useful because it didn’t focus on innovative technology. Digital social innovations in services are not scaling.
