NICA Collaboration Hub

Join a discussion

This page is for the community to find out about events in ageing, in the North East and further afield. Join a discussion to find out more information, ask questions to the speakers and suggests topics you want to hear about. NICA also supports the Aging 2.0 network and will have a dedicated discussion thread for each Aging2.0 meet-up held by the Newcastle Chapter. The purpose of the meet-ups, which are held roughly every 6 weeks, is to bring together innovators in the region. Each event is themed and there will be speakers presenting on their area of expertise in ageing. We encourage you to suggest themes and speakers for future meet-ups and to get involved with the pre and post meetup discussion. The Newcastle Aging2.0 Chapter is organised by Northstar Venture.

Welcome to the exclusive Pre-Event Forum for the next Aging2.0 Newcastle Chapter event (21st November). For this event we are doing things a little differently because we are involving you from the get-go! What’s this forum all about? In the run up to November 21, we invite attendees to post in this space, and to begin the discussion right away. This is your opportunity to connect, discuss and raise your questions and ideas that will feed into the content on the day. About the event The exciting theme for this next event is the UK government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) . As part of the ISCF, the government will launch a Healthy Ageing competition, with a £98 million fund available for collaborative projects. Businesses, small and large will play a vital role in developing projects for competition. We can’t wait to discuss this topic with you all on the 21st (sign up for the event here ). Keynote Speaker & Open Call for questions We are delighted to announce keynote speaker will be Prof. Mike Catt, Director of the National Innovation Centre for Ageing (NICA). Mike’s talk will centre on the work that NICA is doing for the ISCF that aims to place the north at the heart of the activity. Mike would love to hear your questions and requests before the event. Click ‘POST’ if you’d like to: • Ask Mike a question - to be answered by Mike at the end of his talk on 21st • Suggest a topic you would like Mike to focus on during his speech • Request further information We look forward to seeing you on November 21 to discuss the The Healthy Ageing competition. Why not introduce yourself here first so that we can build our network! Click ‘More’ to find out more about Prof. Mike Catt and the competition.

Part of the hub's purpose is to follow innovations wherever they take us. That's why we're asking: what would you like the theme of the next Aging2.0 Newcastle meet up to be? Your response can be inspired by anything – something in the news, a new technological advance or a method you're using or developing yourself. You might not have a theme in mind but instead know of a speaker that you would like to see at the events. We will try to take everyone’s suggestions into consideration and you further on what you would like to see discussed on the day.
