IDIH’s series of podcasts entitled The future of Happy and Healthy Ageing explores with researchers, innovators and policymakers the frontiers of Digital Transformation for Active and Healthy Ageing, and promotes international cooperation opportunities between the EU and 5 key countries and regions.
Podcast #5 is now out! The one on Japan and the uptake of open platforms for AHA by The future of Happy and Healthy Ageing is now available on various platforms. This episode will explore the R&I landscape in Japan around Digital Health and Ageing, especially thanks to the testimonies of Mr. Sakon Yamamoto, CEO of Sawarabi Group, a group of medical-welfare integrated and comprehensive care service providers for the older persons in Japan, and Dr. Lorenz Granrath, interviewed on the perspectives of EU-Japan collaboration in R&I, with a focus on the eVita project, “EU-Japan Virtual coach for smart ageing”.
Interesting insights on the uptake of the open platforms for the development of innovative solutions in the Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA) and Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) domains are also presented, thanks to the participation of Alexander Nikolov, from the project PlatformUptake.eu.
