11:30 AM – 1:00 PM | Plenary Session: How will the Silver economy evolve along technology paths and across borders in the next decade?
Covering the needs and demands of seniors over 50, the Silver Economy covers many products and services using very different technologies, including home automation, sensors and connected objects.
The sector deals with the heterogeneous and difference of consumption between working retirees and dependent older people, and evolves within a complex financing ecosystem that does not facilitate a clear definition of the sector stakeholders relationships.
In this context, how can we predict that the Silver Economy will become a fully-fledged sector of activity where companies currently involved, would feel included, despite the diversity of their activities? What are the current and future initiatives to be taken in order to make the Silver Economy a clearly established economic and industrial sector?
