Aim and scope:
Aging of the population causes not only a substantial increase of GDP spent on elderly care per year but also societal effects, which impact not only the health sector. Meanwhile to develop a sustainable social system, we have to take into account demographic change, changes in the global economy and the development of technologies and therefore a transdisciplinary approach is a must.

The workshop welcomes researchers, academicians as well as industrial professionals of different but relevant fields from all over the world to present their research results and development activities. The workshop will provide opportunities for the participants to exchange new ideas and experiences face to face, to establish research or business networks and to find global partners for future collaboration.
