The “Open Innovation Challenge”
Social Entrepreneur & Agile Ageing Alliance founder
With ICT Health expenditure set to triple to $30bn in the next decade there is clearly a huge socioeconomic opportunity, but meeting the needs of an ageing population cannot be addressed through the lens of a single sector or discipline. The Agile Ageing Alliance (AAA)–born out of Innovate UK - has joined forces with Microsoft to initiate an Open Innovation Challenge, which aims to accelerate development of the most compelling solutions that promote Agile Ageing in our Neighborhoods of the Future. AAA Founder Ian Spero will explain how getting involved with a multi-sector stakeholder group, pooling resources and collaborating in a spirit of open innovation.
