National Innovation Centre for Ageing: Urban Health Business Networking Event
An evening of networking while learning about Urban Health, Natural Environments and Age-Friendly Cities.
__About this Event__
If you work for a business, charity, local authority, university or other organisation on an area related to urban health, we would love to see you at this free networking event organised by Newcastle University. We're especially interested in engaging with businesses working on products and services related to either of our two themes: age-friendly cities and innovation with natural environments. The event will include short talks, from speakers such as Rose Gilroy, Professor of Ageing, Planning and Policy and co-founder of the Future Homes Alliance, a workshop and an opportunity to meet and engage with other businesses and organisations. Drinks and canapés will be provided.
The event is being organised as part of the UNIversity Exchange program creating UNIque learning environments for urban HEALTH (UNI Health) project. UNI HEALTH is a Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Training Program delivered in partnership by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Newcastle University and ARUP. It seeks to engage students, researchers, citizens and professionals around the theme of urban health, involving seminars, workshops, events and student and staff exchanges. In October Newcastle led a week long programme of presentations, field trips and group work on green infrastructure for students, citizens and professionals.
The UNI Health project is funded by EIT Health, a network of best-in-class health innovators backed by the European Union. EIT Health aims to increase business competitiveness, improve quality of life, and increase the sustainability of healthcare systems.
