Ageing & Health
We live in a rapidly ageing world. Today, for the first time in history, most people can expect to live into their sixties and beyond. But longevity should also go hand with an increase in healthy life expectancy. This is a test.
By bringing together innovations in biotech, 3D printing, digital imaging, Artificial Intelligence, materials science and diagnostics, new and improved medical techniques, both curative and preventive, are being developed. Enabling new leaps in longevity and quality of life.
But these innovations also pose new challenges: the need to balance affordability for patients with the return on companies’ development costs and financial sustainability of (public) health insurance.
