We are proud to be selected as one of the leading innovation-centric Swiss companies which impact and allows for improvement of the Silver Economy.
The Opportunity of Longevity: Financing & Technology Solutions for the Silver Economy.
In Switzerland and across Europe, a massive demographic aging is under way which considerably increases the number of retired and elderly requiring adapted healthcare and housing.
For Switzerland, a June 2015 study highlighted a doubling of both the 65-79 and 80+ brackets of the Swiss population by 2040. In Europe, the European Commission’s baseline forecast is that by 2025 the total Silver Economy consumption will grow by 5% yearly to €5.7 trillion.
Join us for an evening conference gathering industry experts, entrepreneurs and academics sharing with you their projects and views relative to this topic impacting us and our elders. Our panel format with open Q&A will allow you to interact with them on various topics ranging from Financing the Silver Economy, adapted Real Estate and Services, and Digital Health technologies.
Furthermore, with special guests from a Belgian economic mission, a broad audience will gather to network and share experiences, expertise and business opportunities between Switzerland and Belgium. Thus contributing to building stronger links between Belgium and Switzerland with regards to Silver Economy and Digital Health topics related to technologies, commercial opportunities and scientific ecosystems.
Being part of a broader international community as well through our Alumni network and its ties with a Joint Business School initiative gathering over 14 international leading business schools, we welcome additional guests from wider horizons and thus keep this event open and in english – while staying open to interventions in other languages!
We look forward to seeing you there,
The Friends of Vlerick and Solvay Alumni in Switzerland Association.
