A globally aging population demands new approaches to ensure people across societies can live and age well. In particular, there is a need to move from health and social agendas that emphasize dependency as we age, to ones that promote healthy aging and independence. This presentation looks at how universities need to respond to these challenges by focusing on an innovation agenda.
