EPIC Conference: May 21 – 30, 2024



EPIC Conference (2024) Program


AGE-WELL, Canada’s AgeTech network, is dedicated to the creation of technologies and services that benefit older adults and caregivers. Our aim is to help older Canadians maintain their independence, health and quality of life through technologies, programs and services that increase their safety, support their independent living, and enhance their social participation.


Now in its fifth year, the AGE-WELL EPIC Conference has grown to be the largest trainee conference at the intersection of health, aging, and technology. We welcome a truly global audience and are delighted by the continued support we receive from partners and attendees worldwide – it underscores the universal natures of AGE-WELL’s mission to accelerate the delivery of technology-based solutions that make a meaningful difference in the lives of older adults and caregivers.


This virtual conference brings together older adults, caregivers, government and industry partners from around the world for eight virtual sessions, each focusing on a specific Challenge Area, and featuring presentations from AGE-WELL leaders, trainees, fellows and alumni, as well as partners and supported startups.


The EPIC Conference (2024) is an opportunity for AGE-WELL and EPIC-AT students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff and early career researchers to present their research alongside their stakeholder partners, highlight its potential impact, and connect with colleagues from around the world. Each session will also feature a new segment called Moving the Dial that highlights how AGE-WELL partners and supported startups are improving quality of life for Canada’s older adults and caregivers.


The EPIC Conference is free and all are welcome to attend!
