EPIC Conference: May 30 – June 10

EPIC Conference (2022) 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.

AGE-WELL has identified 8 Challenge Areas – difficult and complex problem areas found through extensive public consultation – that demand innovation and deployment of real-world solutions. The EPIC Conference (2022) is an opportunity for AGE-WELL students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff and ECRs to share their research, highlight their potential impact and stakeholder partnerships and connect with colleagues. This year, we are pleased to feature invited panels from select AGE-WELL partners. We are also excited to bring together attendees who are older adults, caregivers, and government and industry partners from around the world.

The 10-day virtual conference will comprise of virtual sessions dedicated to one of the identified challenge areas, professional development and expert-based panels, and an EPIC networking event. Four French-language sessions will also be hosted by AGE-WELL partners.

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