New Technologies and Dynamic Ageing Workshop

Ageing presents all kinds of challenges and opportunities. Being aware of existing and emerging technologies that can assist in providing a dynamic lifestyle is critical if we are to confront those challenges and maximise opportunities. This online workshop brings together clinicians and technologists to discuss this important area. It will also be an opportunity to explore how proposed developments at UOW’s Innovation Campus can assist.
