Like most complex problems the demographic shift cannot be addressed through the lens of a single sector or discipline. It is a major concern for private, public and third sectors alike and although there is no silver bullet, there is an opportunity to mitigate this risk by working together collaboratively, in a spirit of open innovation.
AAA has been exploring the challenge with stakeholders, from world capitals to city halls and rural communities across Europe, taking account of commercial opportunity and social impact. Our observations have been captured in a white paper ‘Neighbourhoods of the Future, Better Homes for older adults – improving Health, Care, Design and Technology, which you can download here.

Join the A Team
December 5th AAA and Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting an experimental workshop to explore concepts that address a new Horizon 2020 Challenge: “Adaptive smart working and living environments supporting active and healthy ageing”. Our objective is to establish an ‘A Team’, capable of winning a healthy 3 to 4 million Euro research grant. Space is strictly limited. If you would like to be considered please write to email@example.com.
Open Innovation Challenge
October 2017, AAA joined forces with the Nesta Challenge Prize Centre and invited 40 expert stakeholders to consider the challenge of reimagining our neighbourhoods of the future. Challenge prizes stimulate innovation and enterprise in underserved areas, helping raise awareness as well as encouraging more people to work on a particular problem.
