AGE-WELL EPIC Conference 2023

May 23 @ 1:00 pm - June 2 @ 2:30 pm EDT


EPIC Conference: May 23 – June 2



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 (2023) is an opportunity for AGE-WELL and EPIC-AT students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff and ECRs to share how their research is moving the dial on these issues and improving quality of life for Canada’s older adults and caregivers.


The 9-day virtual conference brings together older adults, caregivers, government and industry partners from around the world for nine virtual sessions, including research presentations and an implementation workshop.


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