Quantum Healthy Longevity: Healthy People, Planet and Growth

The National Innovation Centre for Ageing is hosting a hybrid in-person/online summit at the Catalyst in Newcastle on 29th March between 11:15- 16:00 for start-ups, SMEs, industry leaders, policymakers, researchers, commissioners and investors to explore the latest science and policy developments to foster open innovation and cross-sector collaboration to promote ‘healthy people, planet and growth’.

The session will highlight the links between biology, psychology and behaviour, looking at how health and care can be nurtured and nudged from birth to death in regional innovation clusters to create the 'world test bed for health'.

The day kicks off with a keynote address and overview of the Quantum Healthy Longevity Innovation Mission, including presentations on the scientific framework of the ‘exposome’ underpinning the mission and policy developments on agile regulatory reform to unlock innovation at scale to create the ‘world test bed for health’.

The afternoon focusses on the opportunities in the real world to make it all happen in a vibrant mission-driven tech ecosystem, with workshops led by the NW HealthTech Cluster, Lilli and Ctrl-Shift.
